La Cetra Cornuta: From Confraternity to Court
Two aspects of music from the Trecento and Quattrocento periods, the “devotional” and the “courtly”, are presented in this program of works from Perugian and Florentine manuscript sources. Representing the devotional genre are laude (songs of praise sung by all levels of society, but particularly within the laudesi or confraternities), while courtly musical entertainment includes songs (madrigale, frottole), dance music (bassadanze, balli) and studies in musical proportion.
The short concert performance features the singing of Patrizia Bovi, as well as stringed instruments: two cetre from the early 14th- and late 15thcenturies, plus 15th-c. lute and harp.
