    Default Poetzlinger’s music book

    The St Emmeram Codex is so called because it was preserved in the celebrated library of the Benedictine monastery of St Emmeram in Regensburg. It was the private music collection of Hermann Pötzlinger, who worked briefly as the master of their school

    Stimmwerck specialise in the music of little known composers of the German-speaking world so this is a natural for them. All we know of Peter Schweikl is that he was a canon at the Alte Kapelle in Regensburg. The dean Rudolf Volkhardt von Häringen had been a professor of theology at the University of Vienna when Pötzlinger was a student there. There is a detailed review and discussion of the CD here - http://www.sonusantiqva.org/i/S/Stim...eramCodex.html
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Today is Remembrance Day, one hundred years since the Armistice that put an end to what it was hoped would be the 'End to All Wars'.

    Thinking of all the tragedy and torment caused by that war and all others, and honouring those who fell.

    Even beyond hope, we can still try.

    The Armed Man, the Armed Man is to be feared ...

    Very much enjoying La Harpe de Melodie (Senleches) here, two singers and a harp. A real high point I think.

    Shawms - don't you just love them?

    How could any ill temper or glumness survive a good brisk bout of shawm like this?



    Or this?



    Thank you, David Munrow.

    This little video was interesting too.



    And for fuller information, see Wiki -
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawm

    For aural charm, go seek a shawm.

    Early Music is Fun.

    This is a sub-section we're going to have on our jointly-conceived thread for items that we know may not be completely 'authentic' or even 'top-drawer' performance-wise.

    But they're items which we like and which we hope visitors may enjoy.

    Taggart & I got 'into' Early Music through our passion for folk music and via David Munrow. Folk Festivals we went to in the 1970s & 1980s often featured folk groups performing songs and tunes from the seventeenth century or earlier. We're trying to educate ourselves but we still enjoy Early Music for its Oomph.

    I've always been fascinated by the idea - one I picked up when researching religious ballads - that the pipe and tabor played by one person, as commonly done in medieval and renaissance times, was such a harmonious combination that it served as a mystic trope for God and the soul.

    There aren't too many examples of it on YouTube, but I like this video by Caliban's Dream, despite the silly hat.

    Nice to join this discussion. I have a repertoir to share, One of my favorite mass is Missa Vinum Bonum by Orlando di Lasso, this mass always gives me a good mood and refreshment. Just in several months, I have listened to this mass more than 150 times. For people who are in low point of life, I recommend Missa Vinum Bonum, very energetic, amicable music.

    A beautiful cantata for solo soprano by Telemann, as good as any cantata I've heard from Bach.

    I wanted to like your post, but the button does not work for me. Sure, medieval music is amazing to discover. I have a few cds with medieval chants and pilgrim songs which are some phenomenal works, sounds they have much estern influence even if it was just my imagination. But, we know that Byzantine was also a hotspot of musical production before it was conquered by turks.

    I wanted to introduce and alert people to the not well-known music which is unjustly forgotten, not that I really want to talk about them a lot. Something you are en amour with is something you feel reluctant to praise and discuss more than actual experience and knowledge allow. However, as knowledge and experience increase over time, it will be not immodest to share some experiences and opinions.

    Nasty instrument and recording, and undistinguished music and performance.

    Does anyone know which LP it's from?

    It's from volume one of a five disc L'Oiseau-Lyre release called 'Masters of Early English Keyboard Music'
    which helped establish Dart as a soloist of distinction.
