Guillaume de Machaut – Rose, liz, printemps, verdure (1)

by mariaelainemurphy

As per our discussion on Thursday about performance practice, here are two performances of a rondeau by Machaut. This first performance features only voices. The following post will feature a performance of the same work with solo voice and small ensemble. How does the performer(s) interpretation (instrumentation, tempo, dynamics, etc) impact the audience?
