Margreþa La Fauvelle
Lady Margreþa La Fauvelle spent her first years in the Society for Creative Anachronism as a resident of the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands in the Kingdom of Æthelmearc, when she joined in AS 39. She served as Minister of Arts and Sciences for her Barony, Guest Editor for the A&S issue of the Althing, the Baronial newsletter, and head of the Debatable Consort. She was also a participant in the Debatable Choir, singing mostly alto but also covering tenor parts when needed, and had been chosen as Baronial Bard one week before she found out that she had to relocate to the Barony of Ayreton, Middle Kingdom, where she lived for a few years. There, she was involved with the Court and Country choral group, and she was involved in providing music for dancing, fanfares and Royal and Baronial courts.
Now residing in the Inc. Shire of Archers Ford in the Southern Region of the East Kingdom and hoping never to move to another Kingdom again, she has played for dancers, Coronation ceremonies, fundraiser tourneys (ask her about Laurels VS. Pelicans sometime!), fanfares and vigils, but most importantly just for the fun of playing with other people. She is also her Shire's Webmistress, and she likes to fence when self-inflicted injuries do not prohibit it.
She has been awarded with the Comet Azure-Argent (BMDL A&S award) and Arms by the hand of Christopher I and Morgen I of Æthelmearc, as well as induction into the Order of the Sycamore (Æthelmearc AoA level A&S award), the Order of the Willow (Midrealm AoA level Arts award) and the Order of the Troubadour. Her A&S edition of the Althing received a Sylvan Quill (Æthelmearc newsletter award) Honorary Mention, thus becoming eligible for a William Blackfox Award nomination, and the Debatable Consort received a Comet Azure-Argent while under her leadership.
She has taught classes on recorder playing, music ornamentation, byzantine alphabets and early polyphony, as well as private instruction on singing and instrument playing, and enjoys being part of instrument petting zoos. Together with Sabine de Kerbriant, they form the menestrelle duo Rondelay.
