Wednesday singing: tant con je vivrai

Submitted by Katherina Weyssin on November 5, 2014 - 8:46pm

Our new piece for the evening was Tant con je vivrai,  a virelai by 13th composer Adam de la Halle.

It will take a few weeks to come together, but the harmonies are sounding lovely already - this is a piece that really needs good 5ths. 

When we weren't working on Tant con je vivrai, we continued our efforts to memorise much of the Red Book of Montserrat.

  • Tant con je vivrai
  • Polorum regina (now firmly memorised)
  • Stella Splendens (well on the way to memorised)
  • Ad mortem festinamus (chorus and first verse memorised, next few verses coming)
  • O virgo splendens (first six phrases)
