Musica Aeterna – Hildegard von Bingen

Myth: Women were oppressed in the Middle Ages
In the 1960s and 1970s, the idea that women were oppressed in the Middle Ages flourished. In fact, all we need to do is think of a few significant women from the period to see that that is not true at all: St Joan of Arc was a young woman who was given full control of the French army! Her downfall was political and would have occurred whether she were male or female. Hildegard von Bingen was a polymath in the Middle Ages who was held in such high esteem that Kings, Popes, and Lords all sought her advice. Her music and writing exists to this day. Elizabeth I ruled as a powerful queen in her own right, and many other nations had women leaders. Granted women did not work on Cathedrals but they certainly pulled their weight in the fields and villages. Furthermore, the rules of chivalry meant that women had to be treated with the greatest of dignity. The biggest difference between the concept of feminism in the Middle Ages and now is that in the Middle Ages it was believed that women were “equal in dignity, different in function” – now the concept has been modified to “equal in dignity and function”.

Musica Aeterna – Philippe de Vitry

Assinalada na próxima quinta-feira, dia 9, a efeméride dos 650 anos da morte de Philippe de Vitry (1291-1361), poeta, matemático e influente teórico autor do tratado “Ars Nova”, onde, nos dez últimos capítulos, se apresentam formulações normativas para novos conceitos de ritmos e de notação. Para além de criações de sua autoria extraídas do “Roman de Fauvel”, que constitui uma alegoria satírica à Igreja de Roma e apresenta uma forma bastante expandida do poema com grande número de interpolações monofónicas e polifónicas, acompanham também outras de autores anónimos do período da Escola de “Notre-Dame” e do franco-flamengo renascentista Nicolas Champion. Por João Chambers.
