Mediæval Album – for Viola Trio




Music from almost 1000 years ago can sound somewhat obscure to the modern ear. Harmony, melody, and counterpoint were not as they are today.

And yet there is a wealth of great music just waiting for someone (like Absolute Zero Viola Quartet, for example – just saying) to compile a substantial volume that is fully edited and written in an accessible notation we can all understand.

That’s right! The music is entirely from the 12th to the 14th century, but it is written in modern notation, so we can all play it.

There are 8 works by: Guillaume de Marchaut, Perotin, Francesco Landini, Philippe de Vitry, Leoninus, Jacobo da Bologna, Philippe le Chancelier. 20 mins. E/M
