Description
We'll discuss sources, instrumentation, and performance practice for music from the Middle Ages briefly, then play and sing some of the best surviving melodies together. Selections will be drawn from the trouvere and minnesinger repertoires, the Notre Dame conductus, the Cantigas de Santa Maria and other sources. Bring recorder, guitar, harp, drum or other instrument (or just your voice), as well as a music stand if possible.
