Eastern CT Recorder Society May Meeting
ECRS May ZOOM Session, Saturday, May 15 with Susan Hellauer
"The 13th-century motet: The songs that forced a rhythmic reckoning."
It was the repertory of the French 13th-century motet that forced musicians to create a way of writing rhythmic notation—to show “longs” and “shorts” and “longers” and “shorters”—of both sound and silence--in single, separate signs. It was a watershed “lightbulb moment” in Western music history, and you will see, hear, and play these landmark pieces.
SUSAN HELLAUER is a founding member of the renowned vocal quartet Anonymous 4, and is an adjunct Assistant Professor of Music at Queens College, CUNY.
Music for the workshop will be sent to registered attendees upon registration and the Zoom invitation will be sent the day before.
