6th INTERNATIONAL COURSE OF MEDIEVAL MUSIC
Main theme of the 6th Course:
“Adam de la Halle and the Ars Antiqua of the Thirteenth Century”
Adam de la Halle was one of the rare medieval musicians who was able to compose monophonic and polyphonic music, he was the last great master and French poet (trouvère )of all musical genres of the thirteenth century.
His compositions are documented in numerous manuscripts, 36 chansons and 18 monophonic Jeu- partis, 16 polyphonic motets and 5 rondeaux.
We have among his poetical works “Le Jeu de la Feuillée”, (1098 verses), “Le Roi de Sicile”, (378 verses), and his masterpiece “Le Jeu de Robin et de Marion, composed around 1284 for the Neapolitan court of Charles of Anjou, considered to be the first “opera” in the history of music, a summa of his experiences as a composer and joculatores. Starting with the music by Adam de la Halle we will explore the incredibly detailed sound universe of thirteenth century’s Ars Antiqua. Part of the course will be dedicated to the study of the instrumental estampies in the manuscript Chansonnier du Roi (Paris, Bibl. National, Ms. 844) of motets in Montpellier Codex (Facultè de Medècine Ms H 196) and in Las Huelgas Codex.
