The Recreation of a Medieval Organ at St. Fagans

St. Telios Church, St. Fagans, WalesHere is a quick link to a very interesting project. A team has worked to recreate a medieval organ. None survived the reformation so they’ve faced enormous obstacles researching this project. A story on the BBC lets you hear a sound that has not been heard for centuries.

Foundation Musick’s Monument

Vittore Carpaccio, 1510, Angel with LuteSometimes something is just cool. FOUNDATION MUSICK’S MONUMENT is cool. Here is how they describe themselves:

The Stichting Musick’s Monument produces Historical Art Productions, partly in association with scholars from the Chair of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Pictures, music and text are integrated: You will hear music from the same period and the same area of origin as the visual materials; these are supplemented with explanatory text. From this combination evolves something like a Gesamtkunstwerk (a total work of art), a complete new way of digital art presentation.

This page has a great video. Be patient. Some things on this site take quite a bit of time to load but it’s worth the wait.
