Fri 7 Nov 2008 – EstampieAlready published on my old blog and forgot to add it here.
Estampie is an ensemble playing medieval music with original instruments and of course, vocals. It was a really beautiful concert: small (roughly 90 people), seated and with an enchanting performance of Estampie, especially by their singer Syrah and their newest addition, soprano Sarah M. Newman.
I know Estampie’s music since the early nineties, but so far I have not been attending one of their concerts, obviously, like other bands, they also skip Münster. I have only seen Syrah’s and Michael Popp’s electronic sideproject Qntal live (well, not in Münster).The playlist:
* La morena (sefardí, trad., 14th century)
* La galana y el mar (sefardí, trad., 15th century)
* Floret silva (Carmina Burana, 12th century)
* Ave donna santissima (13th century)
* Trotto (14th century)
* Los caminos (14th century)
* Gaudens in domino/Pferdetanz (13th century)
* Disse mi (14th century)
* Voi ch’amante (13th century)
* A virgen muy gloriosa (Alfonso X. el Sabio - Cantigas de Santa Maria, 1230 - 1284)
* Estampie V (14th century)
* Las suegras de ahora (sefardí, trad., 14th century)
* Quantos me creveren (Alfonso X. el Sabio - Cantigas de Santa Maria, )
* Gran dereit (Alfonso X. el Sabio - Cantigas de Santa Maria)
* and finally: Non sofre Santa Maria (Alfonso X. el Sabio - Cantigas de Santa Maria)
The concert lasted for over two hours (counting the small break within). It was a really impressive performance and when they performed the mongolian horsedance, I was speechless. Needless to say the whole concert send shivers down my spine. To Estampie: Thank you very much for this great evening!
