medieval music ensemble



Named after the troubadour Bernard de Ventadorn (c1130 -- c1200) and his colorful life, BERNARDUS is dedicated to presenting the compelling and rarely heard musical repertoire, literature, and culture of the Middle Ages. Founding members Jay White (countertenor) and Craig Resta (medieval strings) form the core of the group, adding other singers, actors, and instrumentalists to suit each program. The combination of music, images, readings, and drama help recreate the unique experience of the medieval artistic vision, which is a focus of the ensemble and its performances. BERNARDUS celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2023.
