The Story of an Orange-hued Tyrant.ConcodianDawnLogo

Chaillou de Pesstain’s magnificent, radical fourteenth-century reinvention of the old French Roman de Fauvel  tells the story of an orange colored half-horse/half-human who rises to power despite blatant, corrupt, unethical acts. Our redaction of Fauvel exhibits the best of ars antiqua and ars nova musical traditions, weaving together song and poetry into an all-too-timely narrative.

Concordian Dawn specializes in medieval vocal repertoire, drawing on primary source material and focusing on socio-philosophical similarities between texts from centuries ago and the mindset of modern society in order to produce a musical experience that connects the human condition of the past to the familiar experiences of the present.
