Medieval Music & The Holy Grail by Perceval's Lament: Medieval Music & The Holy Grail (2012-10-30)


Your purchase will help support Millennium of Music.

The Holy Grail has occupied a central place in Western life. It was believed by many to have been used by Christ at the Last Supper, and in the middle ages writers saw the Grail as a dish, or a chalice, or a precious stone. Songs and instrumental music celebrated its mystical power and were composed by some of the greatest troubadours, mystics and singer-poets of the age: Chrétien de Troyes, Walther von der Vogelweide, Wolfram von Eschenbach, and Hildegard of Bingen. This disc uniquely focuses on the common threads between Grail literature and music.

II. Das Glogauer Liederbuch (Ensemble Dulce Melos). Naxos CD 8.572576.

Das Glogauer Liederbuch


Your purchase will help support Millennium of Music.

The Glogauer Liederbuch is a forgotten treasure, a rich repository of fifteenth-century music. It contains 292 songs, devotional chants and instrumental pieces which were performed by educated enthusiasts or students, not by professional musicians. The collection also includes several pieces known as ‘Schwanz’ (tail), which probably designates them as dances (‘schwanzen’ being a derivation of ‘tanzen’, ie dancing). The music sung or played in this Lower Silesian monastic community originated in many different countries, but all the pieces show a richly developed standard. The Liederbuch is the oldest known set of part-books from central Europe.

III. Carlo Gesualdo da Venosa—Madrigals Books 5 & 6 (Delitiae Musicae/Marco Longhini). Naxos CD 8.573147/49.

Madrigals Books 5 & 6


Your purchase will help support Millennium of Music.

Published together in 1611, Gesualdo’s Fifth and Sixth Books of Madrigals can be seen as musical ‘twins’, concluding a collection of madrigals by a composer whose boundless invention and creativity was unrestrained by an employer’s demands or the constraints of courtly convention. Gesualdo returns to themes of love and rejection, death and suffering, joy and sorrow; creating music which has the power to surprise and enthrall anyone who hears it. This is Delitiæ Musicæ’s final volume of their highly acclaimed cycle of the complete Madrigals.
