Dream-Cræft: Sequentia ond Leaves’ Eyes

Benjamin Bagby, well-known for his solo performances of Beowulf in the original Old English (click here to see his recitation of the famous opening lines), is now on his “Voices from the Island Sanctuary” tour with his group Sequentia, an ensemble specializing in Medieval music. Check out Sequentia’s official site for more details.

For those interested in a contemporary musical take on the old Germanic cultures, keep your eyes out for the forthcoming album “Meredead” from the German/Norwegian band Leaves’ Eyes. Some tracks apparently will feature lyrics in Old English. Read an interview with lead singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull at Blabbermouth.net.
