While original showings of these silent films featured live performances by hired musicians as accompaniment, this Hesperus performance, rather than attempting to recreate an original score, instead presents music with a historical context matching that of the setting of the movie, specifically, German Medieval and Renaissance music performed on viol, recorder, pipes and percussion

John DeSando of WCBE will present a pre-show lecture.
