AND Early Music With Sara Schneider (EMN 20-31)  

Ensemble Leones

This week's show focuses on Ensemble Leones, directed by lutenist Marc Lewon. The group specializes in Medieval and Renaissance music, with a special affinity for the music of German-speaking lands. We'll hear selections from several of their recordings, including songs by Oswald von Wolkenstein, the Minnesinger Neidhart, and the mysterious Monk of Salzburg. All selections performed by Ensemble Leones

Neidhart (arr. B. Romaine).

Monk of Salzburg: Von anegang der sunne kchlar. O Maria pya. Maria ward ein pot gesanndt.

Anon. (Buxheimer Orgelbuch): Maria tusolacium.

Oswald von Wolkenstein: Ave, Mater, O Maria. Ach senliches leiden. Mit gunstlichem herzen.

Oswald von Wolkenstein: Wol auff, wir wellen slauffen.

Anon.: L’autre jour, par ung matin. Ben Io sa Dio se sum vergine e pura. Ma bouche plaint les pleurs de ma pensee.

Neidhart: Non veul mari.
