AEM ONLINE – Flower of Melody, God of Harmony: Music of Guillaume Machaut (c. 1300-1377) with Patricia Petersen and Douglas Young, recorders
March 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT$25
Esteemed as both a poet and a composer, Machaut saw to his own legacy by overseeing the copying of his works into at least six manuscripts. We will look at some of his hauntingly beautiful songs and clever canons, learning also about the formes fixes of French poetry that remained popular throughout the next century. Audio recordings of the polyphonic pieces will make it possible for players to hear all parts at once while they play. In addition to modern editions, facsimiles of most of the pieces will be provided. Open to: All instruments/voices welcome. Recordings are at 4’ pitch. Pitch: A=440
