The Jaye Consort of Medieval Instruments, 1967
The Jaye Consort have here abandoned their viols (made by Henry Jaye, c. 1620) to play medieval music on reconstructed medieval instruments -- all of which are depicted on the cover. The result is a heterophony, not unlike an Arabian night-club band, but nothing has been added to the music apart from drones, divisions, and a variety of percussion.
01 The Song of the Ass
This is from a play given at Beauvais in the twelfth century and whilst it was sung a young girl representing the Virgin Mary, with a child in her arms rode an ass into the Cathedral and up to the altar.
Little is known regarding the origin of this dance except that it probably dates from the thirteenth century.
03 English dance
Also from the thirteenth century, this piece is played on the medieval fiddle which is both larger in size and lower in pitch than the modern viola.
04 Rege mentem
A fine example of thirteenth century "conductus", or song.
From the fourteenth century, this fine piece is played on the cornemuse, a variety of bagpipes.
Written for, and played on the organ. It may be the earliest known example of keyboard music, and contains much hocket (hiccough) — a style of writing much favoured at the time. It was taken from the Robertsbridge manuscript of c.1325.
07 Li mans d'amer
This is a beautiful unaccompanied ballade by Adam de la Halle, from the thirteenth century.
08 Lamento di Tristan
A melody from the fourteenth century — to which we have added the long-necked lute with metal strings, and nakers, which resemble very small timpani.
The main form of dance of the thirteenth century, incorporating the nasal-sounding rebec.
10 C'est la fin [an. trouvère]
A Trouvère song (virelai) in which the Breton bombardt, a little outdoor shawm will be heard.The words —"It is the end. No matter what is said, I must love".
Like the preceding estampie, this is to be found in the famous "Sumer is icumen in" manuscript.
12 Kalenda Maya
A wonderfully exhilarating song by the famous thirteenth century troubador Raimbault de Vaqueiras.
Pipe & Tabor
