Le Roman de Fauvel or Mundud Inversus

Corina Marti
clavisymbalum, double flute, and recorders

The 14th­–century relocation of the papacy from Rome to Avignon provided ripe opportunity for both shock and satire.

The Roman de Fauvel, an allegorical verse about an orange-hued donkey who becomes king, and whose marriage to Fortune results in the antichrist, is probably the best known work to come out of the tumult.

Basel-based virtuosa Corina Marti performs exquisite musical selections by Philippe de Vitry and others, Ars Nova tales that tell of calamity that ensues when a state loses its way and an ass takes the throne.
