TRAVELOGUE II

The second tale from “A Plural Voice”*


An excursion into the monodic and polyphonic music of early 15th century Cyprus.


Following on from the previous travelogue for which the singers were joined by two instrumentalists, Mora Vocis reverts to its primary, purely vocal, formation. Male and female voices come together to provide a rendition of what a religious ceremony might have been like at the court of Janus de Lusignan, King of Cyprus.

The singers explore the first sections of the Cypriot Manuscript (National Library of Turin J.II.9). Excerpts from the two Ordinaries (which are in fact anything but ordinary!), dedicated to Saint Hylarion and Saint Anne respectively, alternate with Latin and French motets. The superimposed poems intertwine, but whilst continually referring to each other, they have a life of their own.


Repertoire: monody and polyphony from the so-called Cypriot Manuscript Torino J.II.9.


Mora Vocis: five or six male and female voices

A variant of this production features: 3 female voices and gothic or medieval organ (provided by Mora Vocis).


*A PLURAL VOICE

This project puts artistic creativity at the heart of scientific research. Specialists from the CEMM (Centre for Medieval Studies in Montpellier) work together with Mora Vocis and other singers and instrumentalists on the Cypriot Manuscript, a volume of music written at the end of the 14th century and dawn of the 15th century at the French Lusignan court established in Cyprus.
