Medieval Music for recorders

anyone got any sites for this sort of stuff? MIDI, gifs, whatever......

I remember playing lots of stuff at school that was meant to have come from around the time of Henry VIII. I remember bits of the tunes, none of their names.

G'day Alison,

Kathy Potter, the flautist / whistle player ... and lately, recorder player in The Backblocks Musicians just gave me a reprint of a (~late mediŠval) book of tunes to teach birds ... an orignal application of the recorder! (The Elizabethan meaning of the word record was: "to teach by rote, to practise".

I will try to remember to take it when I next venture out west.

Regard(les)s,

Bob Bolton

There are a number of sound files at http://members.iinet.net.au/~nickl/recorder.html. Follow the link to "sound files". Actually there is a lot of other interesting stuff there about recorder history, repetoire, etc.

Alison, I won't try a blue thing, but I believe that the Internet Rennaisance Band site, (http://www.csupomona.edu/~jcclark/emusic/irb-faq.html#em) is an absolute beauty. It covers Medieval and Rennaisance music and has many, many MIDIs grouped by composers, plus some links to other music and recorder sites. I found it very recently looking for some choral works by Ozario Vecchi, one of the pre-cursors to the earliest forms of opera. Regards, John

Never did manage to get much of a grip on history . . where does Playford stand in relation to Medieval?? 'Cause a lot of the Playford stuff has been arranged for recorder, (it all tends to "sit" well on the instrument, IMO) - and as I recall it's all freely available in ABC.

If you are a beggar for punishment and like scholarly stuff then see these two books:

"Anthology of Medieval Music" edited by Richanrd Hoppin and published by W. W. Norton & Company

"Medieval Instrumental Dances" by Timothy J. McGee and published by Indianna University Press. This book puts in modern notation all the known instrumental dances before 1430.

I recall reading or being taught somewhere that medieval music does not specify which insturments are to be used so that nothing is actually for a wind instruments, string instuments, etc.
