EUGENE DESCHAMPS: About Music (from “l’Art de dictier”, 1392) “Music is the last, and the medicine of the ‘seven sciences’; because when the courage and spirit of intelligent creatures are wearied and annoyed with their work in the other arts, music, by the sweetness of her science and the melodiousness of her voice sings for them delectable and pleasant songs. She sings for them by means of her thirds, fifths and octaves, which she performs sometimes on organs and chalumeaux by blowing with the mouth, or touching of fingers and at other times she performs on harps, rubebe, viella, douaine, on drums, on flutes and other musical instruments. Through her delectable melody the hearts and spirits of those who have worked by thought, imagination and physical effort at these arts above mentioned, and which are heavy and annoyed, are restored and recreated and afterwards better able to work at the other six arts.
(…) Ciconia’s music is something to be experienced.(…)
