ENSEMBLE CANDENS LILIUM
Sabine Lutzenberger voice
Albrecht Maurer medieval fiddle, rebec
Norbert Rodenkirchen medieval flute, harp, direction
Candens Lilium presents the medieval Carmina Burana in a new light, far removed from Carl Orff’s famous setting. Basing his reconstruction on other sources containing the same texts, Norbert Rodenkirchen has connected the poetic metres and the corresponding melodies and has studied the notation of the original manuscript. The focus will be on lesser-known songs expressing juvenile rebellion against avarice and corruption, as well as erotic spring poetry.
