Locus Desperatus is a music ensemble, founded in 2013, which specialises in mediaeval music. Its members have had long musical stage careers. It combines a broad repertoire from the Middle Ages with other disciplines, including contemporary dance, literature and even talks by chroniclers and art historians. It is a unique and original ensemble, which seeks to bring its audience closer to mediaeval culture and society through a range of styles and repertoires from the extensive musical heritage of the Middle Ages. Locus Desperatus organises diverse programmes and concerts in order to revive the music which resonated around monasteries, palaces and castles, thereby immersing the audience in an age that was much richer and brighter than the image of it traditionally passed down to us.
