O Ciecho Mondo!

Late Medieval Music About Love, Politics And Salvation  

.


.

The courts of late medieval Europe have seen erotic passion intermingle with political intrigue on a daily basis. Musicians found themselves having to put their art in service of their patrons, whose image and status was thus additionally strengthened and confirmed. Since they had access to the private sphere of the rulers, musicians occasionally became entangled in plots and even espionage (for Hermann Poll, the alleged inventor of the harpsichord, this ended really badly). Amidst the game, they sung the praise of their lords, deplored the unrequited love and betrayal, but also expressed hope for their own salvation. Centuries later, LA MORRA makes their voices audible again.
