15th Wittenberger Renaissance Festival
Wittenberg, Leucorea

Music for Ensemble from the times of Luther

Luther had a profound connection to music as being a means to cure the soul of people, because “the devil hates and despises music…”. Following his advice we will play music for recorder consort from the Renaissance.

For participating in this course the playing of three kinds of recorders is required.
Bass-, greatbass- and contrabass recorders are welcome!
If possible, please bring Renaissance recorders. Instruments can be borrowed if asked for beforehand.

Sackpfeifertage auf der Comburg
Schwäbisch Hall, Comburg

Workshop Medieval  Music for Ensemble

A course for “bassa/ soft” instruments:
harp, hümmelchen, portativ organ, hurdy-gurdy, flute, vielle, lute, percussion, singing instrument players are also welcome!

We will play music such as songs, cansos, dances, motets – for 1 to 4 players. The fascination for the prima vista improvisation of medieval musicians will be an inspiration for our research. As well as the development of music for 2-4 parts, the notation of the music and the system of tonal and rhythmic modes.

All players are welcome who know how to play their instruments, have experience in ensemble playing, are willing to play by heart and to improvise.
