Jessica Walsh: Renaissance And Medieval Music For Flute (Book And CD)

Books and CDs | Flute

Publisher: ADG Productions
Author: Jessica Walsh
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Come play music written by kings and clowns, Ladies and lawyers, dance masters, doctors, and troubadours. Welcome to the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Creativity flourished throughout the times that produced writers, Artists, and scientists such as Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Galileo.

That inventiveness is evident in the imaginative and eloquent music in this collection. Among the melodies are a Portuguese troubadour’s “Song for a Friend” written almost 800 years ago, John Dowland’s “Midnight”, silenced from the mid-1600's until the discovery of Margaret Board’s Lute Book in 1970, and a beautiful and haunting song written by a Scottish Lady. There are over 40 tunes in this beautiful collection.

          A delightful book. I found the CD lovely in its own right (one track is played on a porcelain flute). The pieces vary in length and include songs and dances from many countries. They are all fairly straightforward to play. The notes are interesting and include web site addresses. I am so glad I bought this book.

          The music in this book is very soothing and really nice with the CD, would be a whole lot better if there was just the backing track to play along with aswell as the example. On the hole though very good! :-)
