LINAROL CONSORT OF VIOLS
16th Century German Love Songs
Linarol Consort of Viols presents a concert tour of enchanting sixteenth-century song sung by James Gilchrist and accompanied on copies of the earliest surviving viol by the Linarol Consort.
Love in all is various forms 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 German song and secular music of the period.
James Gilchrist and the Linarol Consort’s musical collaboration is the culmination of David Hatcher's ‘Fugger’ manuscript (Ms. 18-810) transcription project: a
collection of delightful German, Flemish and French pieces from the early 16th
