Further adventures in "finding all my favourite pieces* of early music in facsimile".

*That's a long list. Perhaps most of them. This could take a while.

Finding Mille Regretz

Mille Regretz is perhaps my favourite piece by Josquin des Pres (or perhaps not by Josquin - it's up for debate).

Finding it was pretty easy:

I'm trying to become more fluent in playing and singing from medieval and renaissance notation, so I'm finding facsimiles of lots familiar pieces to practice on. Unsurprisingly, there are a few surprises on the way ...

Ave Vera Virginitas, Josquin

I learned this from the Big Lochac Snogbook (sic) - a fabulous collection of gorgeous pieces. The SATB setting of Josquin's Ave Vera Virginitas is indeed lovely.

So ... this week my wonderful viol teacher, Polly Sussex, set me an interesting piece of homework: find "Angelica Bilta" - a piece by 14thC composer Landini we've been playing - in the Squarcialupi Codex.

There's a facsimile of the codex at IMSLP. Still, easier said than done.

All the aiglets... so I have a new obsession.

So as with many things, this started out one day with the usual thought "I wonder what I can do with that". That, in this case, was about a kilogram of honey which my sister had brought me from some hives they had at home. And what can I do with it turned out to be making some short mead.

Recipe and instructions for scaling the chicken and bacon pies that Katherina and Anna made for lunch at May Crown Tournament in 2015.

Since meeting The Modern Maker, I've become slightly obsessed with the scaled bara measurement system that Mr Gnagy lays out in it.

I've decided to experiment a bit with it, and have redrafted my standard shirt layouts using it, rather than our pedestrian metric system.

I need to find some folks to mug to see whether the scaling works, and specifically whether I've rounded off assorted measurements in the correct directions as I've gone from metric to Bara.

Second Brick Stitch Pouch

Period: 14th- 15th Century Germany

Inspiration: Heavily inspired by an extant pouch in the Victoria and Albert Museum but not an exact copy.

I've just started playing with sprang, and I wanted to experiment with various techniques without trying to produce a historically-accurate item. The result: a stripey, lacey bag for my favourite child.
