Tempus fugit

Music and lyrics of the late middle ages
Bild: Sonnenrad

This programme focuses on the subject of becoming and fading, love, everyday life and death from the point of view of men in the late middle ages. Following the cycle of the seasons, an atmosphere of happiness and melancholy dominates the compositions which range from the boisterous spring song to the gloomy Geisslerlied.

Not only the music, but also the recitations of contemporary letters, read by Klaus Hemmerle (actor at the National Theatre Stuttgart), reflect the life awareness of people living at the transition to the Renaissance.

[The CD corresponding to the programme „Tempus fugit“ was brought out by the CHRISTOPHORUS publishing house).]
