Medieval music ensemble Sequentia collaborates with noted scholars to reconstruct Classical texts by pagan authors Horace, Terence, Homer and others, sung in European monastic centers between the 9th and 12th centuries. The deeply moving poems from Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy will also be featured in reconstructions by director Benjamin Bagby and musicologist Sam Barrett of Cambridge University. …Sequentia delivers the full compass of human expression, from contemplative quietude to virile chest-thumping, all served up with a startling intensity… -The Boston Globe
