Description

Machaut and his time: 14th Century Ars Nova Cultural background In Machauts time the ideal of courtly love was very important in aristocratic culture. Virtually all the poetry of the age deals with love and loyalty towards unattainable noble ladies (the lover regards himself as a feudal vassal of his lady). The best-known poet of courtly love is Francesco Petrarca. In 1327 Petrarca, aged 23, was to be found working briefly at the Popes court in Avignon (there were two popes at the time). He was in love with Laura, a woman from a noble family. She died in 1348 of the great plague that had been rampaging throughout Europe since 1347.

Press reviews

Alte Musik Aktuell

So spekulativ die Interpretation mittelalterlicher Musik auch immer sein mu. Hier wird eine recht plausible Lsing vorgestellt, die die Mitte hlt zwischen Flucht ins Exotische und anpassung an heuige Hrgewohnheiten. (…)

In Tune

(…) Brilliant programming (…) (…) As usual with Channel, production standards are excellent. (…) (…) As such collections go, this is among the best.
