Contributed by harmoniamusicae on Mar 14, 2012

In the cozy and beautiful environment of the Church of Santa Barbara dei Librai in Rome a reconstruction of a XVII century mass celebration, based on Frescobaldi’s Messa della Madonna and coeval vocal music, in the perfect style of period religious rites.

Nell'affascinante e raccolto ambiente della Chiesa di Santa Barbara dei Librai, nel cuore di Roma, una ricostruzione idealizzata di una celebrazione liturgica dei primi anni del XVII secolo, basata sulla Messa della Madonna di Girolamo Frescobaldi (tratta dai suoi Fiori Musicali), sommo organista ferrarese trapiantato ed attivo a Roma a cavallo tra il XVI e il XVII secolo, e su musiche vocali coeve. Organo e voci si alternano nel puntualizzare i vari momenti della celebrazione nello stile dell'epoca, quando la musica costituiva l'unico contatto tra celebrante e fedeli nei riti delle varie cappelle musicali romane.

Contributed by Admin on Mar 14, 2012

(Italian Renaissance and Baroque DanceFencing” Workshop)

“The Marguerite, whether flower, symbol or name, is the theme of the fourth summer internship organized by Bassa Toscana. Like dance, fencing, as proposed at the initiation stage, meets the same rigor and beauty of movement in space. This discipline is found in early writings of the quattrocento in the manual "Flos Duellatorum" of Fiore dei Liberi. Thoinot Arbeau himself in "the Orchesographie" describes a war dance “Les Bouffons” where the current vocabulary of combat is already quoted (but dancing!).  …”
