Trouvere Music Works

Based on the 14th C Paris MS drawing, this instrument has a very thick solid curly maple body with a fine grained spruce sound board, maple bridge and tailpiece, walnut fingerboard, boxwood nut and Aquila Nylgut strings and tied on frets. It has an exceptionally mellow quality and good volume. Based on the 13th Mont St Michel illumination, this citole has a surprisingly big voice, both loud and bright. Based on a figure in the 13th C cathedral in Reims, this citole has a solid poplar body with a spruce soundboard, maple bridge and tailpiece, cherry fingerboard, boxwood nut and nylon strings. We try to keep one of these in stock as much as possible. Based on a 14th C Flemish Manuscript, this citole has a solid poplar body with a spruce soundboard, cherry fingerboard, maple tailpiece and bridge, boxwood nut, wood frets and nylon strings.

A virginal by Marcus Siculus, 1550, Fenton House, Hampstead, London

Nº FEN/I/5 The process of determining the unit of measurement used by Siculus begins by looking at the geometry of the near left-hand corner. The tangent of the angle at this corner gives the ratio of the sides used to construct the corresponding angled side of the instrument. For this virginal the angle at the near left-hand corner is 67½°. Therefore: tan 67½° = 2.414 Also the lengths of the sides forming this angle (see Table 3) were measured and found to be 130mm and 54mm. . = 2.407, a value which, as expected, is close to the tangent of the angle there. A quick glance at a slide-rule[18] shows that 6/2.5 = 2.400 and suggests that the lengths of these two sides might have been designed to be 6 once and 2½ once.

. = 21.67 mm/oncia and that 54mm = 2.5 once so that there would be = 21.6 mm/oncia. Which, again as expected, is close to the value of the tangent there. Suggesting that the two sides were designed to be 15½ once (= 332½mm) and 10 once (= 210mm). The Early Music Shop England - the largest source of early musical instruments worldwide.
