Programme Note
Peter Maxwell Davies Notre Dame des Fleurs (1966)
BRIEF PROGRAMME NOTE

This mini-opera is based on the notion from the mediaeval bestiary that the best way to capture a unicorn is to ensnare him by placing a virgin in his way – he would automatically lay his head on her lap and thus fall an easy prey to the hunter’s arrows.
