Restoring Lost Songs: Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy


In these pages you will find information, videos, and reviews relating to performances of Sam Barrett and Sequentia's reconstructions of Boethius' De consolatione philosophiae.

The videos represent initial attempts at reconstructing two songs from the Consolation of Philosophy. Users may wish to compare the versions here with those subsequently recorded.  It is also instructive to see how the musical performances are shaped by interactions between the players and their instruments.
