The programme features both enchanting sixteenth-century song, performed by the exemplar James Gilchrist, accompanied on copies of the earliest surviving viol, and innovative instrumental pieces. Love in all its various forms (unrequited, romantic and lascivious mischief) is explored in the songs by leading musical figures working in Maximilian’s court: Heinrich Isaac, Paul Hofhaimer and Ludwig Senfl, one of the most prolific composers of the period.

James Gilchrist and the Linarol Consort’s recording of this repertoire, Inn Stetter Hut (Inventa), is the culmination of a project started by David Hatcher (artistic director of the Linarol Consort) over a decade ago when he began transcribing the ‘Fugger’ manuscript (Ms. 18-810): a collection of delightful German, Flemish and French pieces from the early 16th century.

St Edmund Hall, Oxford University, professor of medieval German, Henrike Lähnemann will present the pre –concert talk on 7th March having helped James extensively with early German pronunciation and text translation. Here is is link to Henrike’s blog post on the Oxford Medieval Studies website.

We are very grateful to generous support from Gemma Classical Music Trust, Angel Early Music, The Music Reprieval Trust and the Continuo Foundation
