We are a unique group, founded by the late Margriet Tindemans in 1990, open to all women in the Seattle area, presenting an opportunity to sing in a friendly and supportive environment. We are one of the few choirs in the United States to specialize in medieval repetoire, a less familiar but very beautiful body of music, spanning 400 years (1100-1500 C.E.). Choir members come from all walks of life and ages, and many have sung with the choir for more than a decade.
For the past 27 years, the Medieval Women’s Choir has presented repertoire from the British Isles, Spain and Portugal, France, Germany, Scandinavia, the Netherlands and included special themes such as medieval Jewish Sephardic music, the music of St. Hildegard of Bingen, Cantigas of Santa Maria, and semi-staged narratives like Ordo Virtutum, City of Ladies, and Heloise & Abelard. We sing in many languages, with dialectic variations from the period, along with translations.
