Five centuries after a French peasant girl was condemned to death for defying authorities, Carl Theodor Dreyer commemorated her in his unforgettable 1928 silent masterpiece, The Passion of Joan of Arc. This sublime film receives what critics say is its finest musical score from the Orlando Consort, one of Europe’s most highly regarded early music vocal ensembles. The Consort transports us to Joan’s world, accompanying the film live with a suite of meticulously assembled sacred and secular music from her time­—including a poetic tribute to Joan by her contemporary Christine de Pizan.
