Exeter Riddles (John B Hedges) - based on texts from the Exeter Book
Sunday, May 8, 2011
St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
New Paltz, New York

Written in a single hand, the Exeter Book is one of four manuscripts, dating from the second half of the tenth century, that preserve virtually all the poetry in Old English that has survived. Among the other texts, there are over 90 riddles, written in the style of Anglo-Saxon poetry and ranging in topics from the religious to the mundane - many of them double entendres. Exeter Riddles is a collection of pieces for chorus set to five of the riddles. The work is as varied as the riddles themselves, at times aggressive, at times mysterious and lyrical, and at other times bawdy and suggestive. They are accompanied by harp and drum (instruments that would have traditionally done so). Kairos presented the world premiere of Exeter Riddles on our 2011 spring concert.

JeanMarie Kern Chenette, harp; Craig Fryer, drum

No. 1: Shield (from Riddle 5)
No. 2: Bread Dough (from Riddle 45)
No. 3: Water (from Riddle 39)
No. 4: Bagpipe (from Riddle 31)
No. 5: Iceberg (from Riddles 69 and 33)
