AEM ONLINE – IN SECULUM: Early Polyphony in Codex Montpellier and Bamberg Codex – an Instrumental Approach to 13th-century Motets with Annette Bauer, recorder

September 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


Codex Montpellier and Bamberg Codex are counted among the main sources of 13th-
century polyphony. Most of the two- to four-part repertoire is texted, with Latin and
French lyrics. Most typically, one voice is rooted in sacred chant, a second voice fea-
tures a Latin sacred text, and a third voice might feature a different Latin text or French
lyrics. Sacred and secular topics can simultaneously appear in the same piece. Our class
will explore this exquisite repertoire from an instrumental point of view, with a focus on
the textless pieces, many of which are built around the tenor “In Seculum” and feature a
rhythmical composition technique referred to as hocket. Geared to: intermediate to ad-
vanced recorders and other instruments. Play-along recordings will be on recorders.

Pitch: A=440.
