In the Mode: September 29, 2013

In the last program of the series featuring Trio Medieval, the women investigate their Scandinavian roots, with some medieval and later folk songs.  They are joined by percussionist Birger Mistereggen, a specialist in the rare Norwegian folk-drum tradition. Some of the medieval ballads have survived mostly because of the stories they tell. One of the singers says—“none of us grew up as a folk musicians, but we were surrounded by folk music.  These are songs we have known since childhood”. 

CD Title: Trio Mediaeval Folk Songs

“Ave Maris Stella”, Hail, Star of the sea is a plainsong Vespers hymn to Mary. It was especially popular in the Middle Ages and settings of the text have been made by many other composers. Seems we are unsure of who created the original, the text is found in 9th century manuscripts. Next time on In the Mode we’ll hear several settings of Ave Maris Stella.

Next time on In the Mode we’ll hear music with roots back to the sibyls of antiquity. The Hilliard Ensemble sings Prophetiae Sibyllarum by Orlando di Lasso.  Words that are attributed to the sibyls, supposedly telling of the coming of Christ, but are actually by early Christians. We don’t really know what the sibyls said, we only know that they gave doom-laden predictions in Greek verse.

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck

Sweelinck, his sources and his influence is the name of the collection of organ music that is featured next time on In the Mode. Incredibly, no keyboard manuscripts of Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck survive, but the good news is that the many young German organists who visited Amsterdam to study with Sweelinck held such a high opinion of their master’s work, that it was spread all over Europe by them. We’ll hear organist Bernard Winsemius perform. CD TITLE: Psalmi ad Vesperas (1694) PERFORMER: Houston Chamber Choir CD: MSR 1437
