« Diz en son latin » – Reconstruction of the Oldest Occitan-Catalan Repertoire

Semestre 2

Mauricio Molina, Cristina Alis Raurich

Course Subject :

Reconstruction of the music and exploration of performance possibilities for the earliest Occitan-Catalan songs (a selection of some 5 pieces).

Work dynamic :

1) Musicological approach :

  • transcription of the pieces with musical notation
  • creation of melodies for pieces without melodies (following different possibilities based on intonation formulas)
  • pieces with similar poetic rhythm, etc
  • exploration of performance possibilities (taking into consideration functionality of the pieces, audience, indication in the manuscript, etc…)

This will be done for every piece.

2) Practical approach :

  • proper pronunciation, rhythm, rhetorical delivery, tuning, phrasing, ornamentation, musical instrument accompaniment.
  • For the accompaniment we will have some few instruments available in class : 1 vielle, 1 citole (or guitern), 1 portative organ, 1-2 percussion instruments…

These instruments will be given to those students with some experience.
