My heart, my castle, my treasure 

As a song composer and poet Guillaume de Machaut is one of the most influential artists of the Middle Ages. In this performance a selection of the musical works, letters and writings of the fourteenth-century pioneer are interwoven into a bittersweet epic of love that could very well be the real story of Machaut’s broken heart. The strings, recorders and voice of the young ensemble Contactus glue the different elements together.
