Medieval Music

#1  Postby Alan B » Aug 07, 2020 4:55 pm

This was written about 900 years ago. Music like this should not be forgotten.

And another...

And, of course, we cannot forget Carmina Burana...


And, er, deflowering virgins - Carmina Burana style.


Just sitting looking at the PC and listening to ancient music (I suppose I could do some tidying up...).
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

That it is recorded by modern musicians is indication that it isn't forgotten :) We do have to keep in mind that there's a good bit of interpreting going into these performances.

Some of my favorite performers are David Munrow and his Early Music Consort of London (OG), Patrick Denecker/La Caccia and the Norwegian Cornett & Sackbut ensemble.

Bogurodzica - Mother of God - Battle hymn of Polish Knights

Praecepta Hadrianina vitae iucundae sunt haec: cervesiam frigidam bibere, cannabim sativam nonnumquam fumere, amicos diligere, inimicis digitum medium ostendere, tesseras L-nummarias impendere, feleculas delicatius tractare, mammas sugere.

Hussars were elite cavalry from post-medieval period (Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth);
According to some chronicles, Polish knights sang Bogurodzica at the Battle of Grunwald (1410) - biggest european battle of medieval period.

There is also other medieval Polish song - Pieśń Wojów Krzywoustego - The Song of Polish Warriors

That's so cool! I don't think any of our Slavic brethren had knights of that calibre (save perhaps Russians and their bogatyrs), south Slavs didn't for sure :popcorn:

The only surviving fragment of a Middle English song about how much winter sucks:



I wonder how these people would react to being informed that people tend to gain weight during the winter these days.

Anyone for bardcore?
