the Maid of Orleans
She came from nowhere, spoke of God and roused the French from their state of despair: Jeanne la Pucelle, the Maid of Orleans, remains an enigma to this day. Not much more than a child, how did she manage to succeed where all men had lost all hope? Who betrayed her to the English and why? Jordi Savall reveals the secrets of her life in his musical panorama from time of the Hundred Years War, the backdrop of which was the Europeans’ eternal longing for peace and the longing of the Middle Ages for God.
