Video: Vicens/Romain/Stricker Trio Performs Music of the 14th Century
Much like today, it wasn’t all that unusual for instrumentalists in the Middle Ages to co-opt a song and make it their own, albeit without the power of words to drive the interpretation.
Nevertheless, they still had to know the basic sentiment of the text.
In the video below, the trio creates a spellbinding mood on the anonymous song En wyflicht beildt ghestadt.
The performers are Catalina Vicens, organetto, Baptiste Romain, vielle, and Félix Stricker, slide trumpet.
