Early Music @ 1 - Monday 6th April
We are very excited to welcome you to our new video blog introducing some amazing early instruments! This week we are focusing on medieval instruments and we are starting with some beautiful medieval recorder music performed by Fiona Kizzie Lee. Some of you might recognize Fiona as we were very lucky to have her work with us in the London shop a few years ago! The pieces featured in the video are "Douce Dame Jolie" by Guillaume Machaut (c. 1300-1377), "Salterello I" by Anonymous, from the Medieval Tuscan Manuscript GB-Lbl Add. Ms. 29987 and "O rosa bella" by John Bedyngham ( †1459/60).
Fiona is currently studying for a second master’s degree specialising in Renaissance Music at Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in the class of Corina Marti. She plays the recorder and medieval keyboards in groups such as La Fiamma and L’Artiste. Watch out for some more videos by Fiona in the next few weeks, and in the meantime you can find all upcoming concerts, recordings and more videos on her website.
