5 Secular Pieces - 3 Scores

5 Secular Pieces - 3 Scores

5 Secular Pieces - 3 Scores composed by Barbireau/Barbingnant. For lyra viol, tenor viol, bass viol; or STB recorders. String Trios, Recorder Trios. Early Music Library. 3 Scores. Published by London Pro Musica (MM.EML0222).

This publication contains almost all the surviving secular works of two relatively obscure fifteenth-century composers who seem in fact to have been confused with each other: Jacques Barbireau(c.l420-1491) of Antwerp, and the mysterious Barbingnant, about whom almost nothing is known. The complete edition of Barbireau's works by Bernhard Meier (Corpus Musicae Mensurabilis 7) includes the works that are attributed to Barbingnant, treating the two musicians as one. The only piece that are not included here is Barbireau's famous Een vroylic wesen, which included in EML0355. Incidentally, the song Au travail suis, which was attributed to Barbingnant in one source, is probably by Ockeghem (to be included in our forthcoming complete edition of Ockeghem's songs). Though obscure, both musicians produced at least one piece that was extremely well-known in their own time: Barbireaus Een vroylic wesen and Barbingnant's L omme banni. Both composers fill an interesting stylistic niche: their music is a little more modem in general sound, more elaborate rhythmically, and more experimental in use of texture than that of Hayne van Ghizeghem, but less imitative than that of Busnois, to whom they are probably closest. However, our understanding of this music is seriously hampered by the lack of texts in many cases: for instance, the very simple top part in Scon lief could be some kind of popular tune, but without the text, we are in the dark. CONTENTS: Scon lief (Barbireau) Der Pfoben Swancz (Barbingnant) Gradeulx et biaux (Barbireau) En esperant (Barbingnant) Lhommi bani de sa plaisance (Barbingnant).
