hominisaevum:

This is a renaissance hurdy gurdy based on instruments in paintings by Hieronymus Bosch

His most well known depiction of a hurdy gurdy is in his ‘Garden of earlthy delights’ in which a good amount of detail can be seen.

A lesser known depiction is from ‘The temptation of St. Anthony’ where a man with a wooden leg has an instrument slung over his shoulder.

The instrument above has English walnut back, ribs and fittings with boxwood pegs and sharp keys.

It’s only the beginning of a theme. It’s never completed, because Bruce Wayne never gets past the point of his parents’ murder. If you listen carefully, there’s a choirboy at one point, and through electronic trickery — and too much time spent in the studio! — his note freezes and goes on for four minutes. We literally froze him in time.

hominisaevum:

One of only very few early printings of Martin Luther’s hymn: “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.” There are no known first edition printings left. This book is a second edition, and extremely rare. It is in the holdings of the Lutherhaus museum in Wittenberg, Germany.

Photograph by Paul T. McCain. June 2006. Wittenberg, Germany.

Luther was a prolific hymn-writer, authoring hymns such as Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott (A Mighty Fortress Is Our God), based onPsalm 46. Luther connected high art and folk music, also all classes, clergy and laity, men, women and children. His device for this linking was the singing of German hymns in connection with worship, school, home, and the public arena.

mediumaevum:

Hildegard of Bingen, Ordo virtotum, opening

Patriarche et Prophete
Qui sunt hi, qui ut nubes?

Virtutes 
O antiqui sancti, quid admiramini in nobis? Verbum del clarescit in forma hominis, et ideo fulgemus cum illo, edificantes membra sui pulchri corporis.

Patriarche et prophete
Nos sumus radices et vos rami, fructus viventis oculi, et nos umbra in illo fuimus.

TRANSLATION

Patriarchs and Prophets: 
Who are these, who seem like clouds?

Virtues:
O ancient holy ones, why do you marvel at us? The Word of God grows bright in the form of a man, and thus we shine with him, building the limbs of his beautiful body.

Patriarchs and prophets:
We are roots, and you are branches, the fruit of the living eye, of which we were the shadow.

medieval:

The chanson Belle, Bonne, Sage by Baude Cordier, written in the shape of a heart, with a red note coloration string of notes forming another heart.

Most of the compositions in the Chantilly Codex date from ca. 1350-1400. There are 112 pieces total, mostly by French composers, and all of them polyphonic. The codex contains examples of many of the most popular courtly dance styles of its time, such as balladesrondeausvirelais, and isorhythmic motets. Some of the motets are rhythmically extremely complex, and are written in intricately exact musical notation. Two pieces by Baude Cordier were added at a slightly later date at the front of the manuscript, and use unusual shapes to reflect their musical contents. The piece “Belle, Bonne, Sage” (image right) is a play on words on the “Cor” (“heart”) in “Cordier”.
