Thread: Early music revisited

    Early music revisited

    Let's hear it for Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music influences transposed, altered or modernized.
    Gryphons welcome.

    Here's a (possibly) "prog' friendly" reading of Dowland by David Chevallier:

    He has also released a superb Gesualdo album :

    This Israeli band didn't set out to be a "prog" band. They thought, "wouldn't it be interesting if we created baroque style rock music?"

    Nothing electric here, but it doesn't matter....this group is just amazing. I've seen them at least 5 times over the years - the last time was a few years agaon at The Cloisters in NYC - the perfect environment for this group and their music. Get all of their CDs.

    It’s become popular of late to bash recorder music. I humbly offer Telemann as a counter-argument:

    Hi all, new to this forum. Just picked up an original Gypsy, self titled from 1970. Very little outside of Wikipedia on them. The album from Metromedia Records states it is a promotional copy. Listened to both albums of the two album set and is amazing! Can't find songs to download and no similar or same on Ebay. Any info anyone has would be great.

    Gorky's Zygotic Mynci used some old instruments on their Barafundle album:

    Cursed, Coined and Crucified -a beautiful instrumental with Crumhorns:


    and Starmoonsun , a song with massed Shawns at 1.25:

    I'm a big fan of this kind of music; not at home right now or I'd list some favorites. Also a big fan of that Gypsy album and the Gorky's Zygotic Mynci album, too!

    It's great that early music is addressed here. But in reality nothing here goes back farther into time. This is all written music. I've always had a fascination about very ancient music from ancient civilizations such as Celtic, Roman, Egyptian, Babylon, Persia, etc.. That's why my handle is AncientChord. How much music today bears motifs and echoes from ancient times? Celtic music in particular is an example, but most of the traditional music played today is no older that 300 years. I'm guessing that Brittany's Alan Stivell, on his early albums can get close to the sound, with him playing steel stringed harp, but the Breton Celtic music played is still relatively recent. So my question is, how close is today's traditional folk music to the real very early music from these early cultures? Any thoughts?

    As you probably know there are archaeologists and, apparently, "paleorganists" who study these questions. And there are surviving bits of musical notation going back as far as Sumeria:

    http://www.openculture.com/2014/07/t...the-world.html

    One group of academics and musicians that focuses on ancient Roman instruments and music is Synaulia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synaulia

    and what they do sounds like this:



    While I've no expertise, it seems to me that there must be a lot of guesswork and speculation involved. There are no surviving records of musical notation from ancient Rome and it appears that, based on the lack of any evidence in written accounts or visual art, they may not have written music down at all.
