Carl Theodor Dreyer's La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc (1928) is one of the masterpieces of silent cinema. It has been accompanied by various forms of music, but only The Orlando Consort combines it with live performances of music from the period that the film depicts, namely the early 15th century.
Valuable information about this project is available on the ensemble's website.
