Lecture: The ‘great heathen army’ in England

Wednesday, November 8 at 18.00 – 19.00

Between the years 865 and 879, a large Viking force advanced in what is now England. They conquered and settled in three of the four great Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, approaching the fourth. This story is an important part of the established history of the Viking conquests and of the unification of England. But new research suggests that this narrative needs to be reconsidered. With Drc. Gareth Williams, Curator at the British Museum.

This lecture is held in English.

The Romeo & Juliet Choir celebrates 500 years of Gustav Vasa

Wednesday, October 18 at 19.00 and Saturday, October 28 at 16.00

When Gustav Vasa was elected king of Sweden in 1523, the cultural life of southern Europe exploded. In this concert, the Romeo & Juliet Choir offers songs by the greatest artists of the time, such as Josquin des Prez, Clement Janequin and Juan del Encina, as well as stories by Boccaccio and Ovid that were heard in squares and ballrooms in Milan, Avignon and Granada during the first half of the 16th century. Tones and stories that found their way north via merchant travelers and court musicians and may have been heard in the court during Vasa’s time.

Idea and direction: Benoît Malmberg
Arrangement for lute: Niklas Atterhal

1 hour 20 minutes, no intermission.
