The Mediaeval Baebes – live
Unique corporate entertainment
Captivate audiences at your corporate event with this unusual, and beautiful act. First formed in 1996 when a group of friends broke into a North London cemetery and sang together clad in flowing white gowns and crowns of Ivy.
The initial idea of getting a few friends together to sing for fun quickly escalated into this unique of musical ensemble which brings a touch of class, quality and the medieval to any event sourcing lyrics from mediaeval and romantic texts and setting them to original scores using mediaeval and folk instruments. The songs are sung in obscure and ancient languages and the Baebes offer a beguiling musical beauty and outstanding talent. Their choice of mediaeval texts were mythological, philosophical and dark in topic meditating upon the inevitability of death, the pointlessness of material possessions, the agony of unrequited love or the dangers of imbibing too much alcohol! Some themes are timeless!
Seventeen years later these fair maidens have placed three albums into the top of the classical charts and contributed to the BBC production of The Virgin Queen which resulted in an Ivor Novello Award 2007 for best television soundtrack.
The Mediaeval Baebes have performed before awe-struck audiences in the UK, United States, Canada, Asia and Europe in venues ranging from castles and caves to nightclubs and cathedrals. They have toured with Jools Holland and played at the Royal Albert Hall, Carnglaze Caverns in Cornwall, Jersey Opera House, Tewkesbury Abbey, supported Michael Flatley in Hyde Park, and performed at the legendary Lilith Fayre.
