The Marriage of Sound of Symbol

 

For people of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, music wasn’t just pretty; it almost always meant something, either through allegorical symbolism of theology or architecture and madrigalistic representation of images, text, and emotion. Join us as we explore the entire range of Medieval and Renaissance music, navigating the realm of musical symbolism to perform the history of the early modern marriage of image, text and music. With an all-workshop collegium concert telling the story of Marian symbolism--from the melodies and narratives of the medieval pastourelle and allegorical motets of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries to the sublime motets and Mass of Henricus Isaac and Josquin Desprez. Afternoon classes include music for voices, recorders, loud wind ensemble, and bowed and plucked strings, the entire early modern instrumentarium!
