Quote from: Mandryka on November 03, 2022, 07:50:33 PMThanks - I'm listening now. And of course, I booked a seat at the concert!
Quote from: Mandryka on November 07, 2022, 11:26:02 AMWhich turned out to be an enjoyable hour -- it's going to be broadcast and streamed. The high point for me was the Tallis lamentation and a piece by Byrd which was very contrapuntal. The Tye mass was certainly interesting in the Gloria and Sanctus. Cinquecento are the sort of singers who've thought hard about how to present their music, the focus is on sound and not on meaning. They are Bildungsbuergertum.
Quote from: Traverso on February 10, 2023, 05:23:53 AMThe music or sound can be helpful in freeing the meaning from its dogmatic corset
Quote from: Mandryka on February 10, 2023, 09:44:54 AMThe meaning of what?
Quote from: Traverso on February 10, 2023, 10:07:17 AMGood question,Good quention,I'm afraid that we are moving into too rarefied realms. What I am trying to say is that what we can experience may be more than what words indicate.

Quote from: Mandryka on April 12, 2023, 11:32:25 PMCan't help feel that the move from Josquin to Palestrina is a move in the wrong direction (forward, where the music IMO deteriorated, rather than back.) Caron is a good idea though, a very good idea!

Quote from: Mandryka on May 02, 2023, 08:36:55 AMThanks, and I can see how a modal Palestrina mass may be interesting - by modal I mean Hanai's highly introspective style. The article prompted me to listen to Palestrina's Salve Regina, which I couldn't remember. I'm afraid the performance I chose, Testolin, didn't convince me that the music is interesting. But possibly Hanai would, as I say. By the way, I'm generally very sceptical about the importance of making the text clear in religious ceremonies. The text is abundantly clear in chant, and they're the boring bits of the sung mass, the bits which no one listens to, they just go into a daydream at best. When good polyphony starts up - I mean Josquin but not later - the music is so beautiful that the experience for the audience is . . . numinous.
