Monks Singing Pagans: Medieval songs of heroes, gods and strong women

When thinking about the musical life of Medieval monks, Gregorian chant comes to mind. But this program reveals other music the monks were singing that was far from Christian, as they incorporated writings of Roman authors and thinkers, such as Homer and Horace, and the deeply moving poems of Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy.
