They perform more than forty concerts worldwide, introducing one or two new shows every year. Through the years they have performed more than twenty different ones. In their performances they use reconstructions of ancient instruments, as well as of wardrobe and scenery. They also give medieval music courses in the Festival of Urbino, the Royaumont Abbey and the Cité de la Musique in Paris.
