This week we are excited to be at the Stoke Newington Early Music Festival – performing Vision: the imagined history of Hildegard von Bingen on Saturday 9 July 2016 at 7.30pm.
We’re particularly excited to be working with acclaimed actress Jan Chappell (pictured).

Blurring the boundaries of drama/concert, this event explores the extraordinary life of Hildegard of Bingen, alongside her haunting and distinctive chant, with candlelight. ‘Vision’ aims to give an insight into the painful visionary experiences Hildegard suffered.

And The Telling is having a busy year. We’ve just done a residency in June at the Stroud Green Festival to develop our new programme The Lily and the Rose (which we are also performing at Brighton Early Music Festival on 4 November 2016) – and we also performed our old favourite Unsung Heroine. There are pictures here on Facebook We’re also performing Vision again on 8 November 2016 for Leamington Music in Warwick. We hope to see you at a concert soon.
