WIMA: Werner Icking Music Archive Welcome to the CANTUS Database! | CANTUS Database Renaissance Instruments Renaissance means rebirth or reinvention. Music of the Renaissance period was going through a rebirth as artists had more creative freedom than in earlier periods. The Renaissance was between the years 1400 to 1600 C.E., and the music of this time had a polyphonic style. Music was very much a sacred art form, but more composers started creating secular music for informal gatherings and dances. Organs, harps, and viols were the main Renaissance instruments used during church services and other sacred gatherings. The lute was a popular instrument used when playing music for dances. Shawm The shawm is a woodwind reed instrument used primarily for social and secular music of the Renaissance era. The Renaissance Shawm is a site maintained by Iowa State University that educates about the use and make of the shawm. Bass Recorder Bass recorders are of the woodwind family and were created in one piece. Muzika! Glastonbury Pipe Treble Viol Tabor Bass Viol Tenor and Bass Crumhorn

All the World's a Stage Here's the latest update for our annotated list of REED-related web resources. I've reduced the number of separate pages to 10 and added some new resources, chiefly in the expanded Local History section. The REED Anglo-Latin Wordbook (linked on in the Mediaeval and Early Modern Theatre page), has been expanded to include the collections from Cambridge through Inns of Court. And we have also added PDFs of the revised REED Handbook and the Palaeographic checking guidelines. The need for annotated lists, that is, meta-bibliographies of sites, has never seemed greater. In the course of this update, a search engine returned 9,910,000 'hits' for the phrase 'medieval English theatre' and 99, 400,000 hits for the phrase 'early music'!

untitled This is an Early Music site featuring the English composers Robert Jones and Philip Rosseter, furthermore the works of these composers involve much more than music. Robert Jones set the poems to most of the great Elizabethan poets to music and Philip Rosseter was Thomas Campion's best friend and collaborator. Rosseter and Jones were involve in a theatrical adventure and their music was used for plays and masks. Thus, this site must additionally be a Shakespearean Poetry and Drama site. This page was written & compiled by Patrick Connolly. OK, you don't care, you are just interested in the Care Bears. Under Construction. This is the 400 year anniversary of Robert Jones's 5th (& last) booke ["The muses gardin for delights or fifth booke of ayers, 1610], and this is one of the 21 songs of the book. Why should Robert Jones and Philip Rosseter be considered together? There can be no doubt that Robert Jones and Philip Rosseter were both admirers of Thomas Campian. The Child Actors by H.
