Description
 

Performers: Musicians of the Early Music Institute
Director: Thomas Binkley

The songs on this CD were composed in the late thirteenth century. According to the practice of the time, they were collected and written down at the same time they were performed. Most often only the texts were recorded, but two sources containing both text and music survived, a late thirteenth-century laudario from Cortina and a sumptuously decorated laudario from early fourteenth-century Florence. The songs in these collections are characterized by great beauty and directness of expression and by surprising variety and virtuosity. In performance they exude the ardent devotion and passionate spirituality that the friars of the time inspired among the people of medieval Italy.
