Tryzna & In Vino Veritas 2014, France, Machecoul.
The Medieval Spectacle
Tryzna is a re-enactment society dedicated to exploration of Medieval music from Eastern and Northern Europe. As a society, we are involved in a multitude of projects all of which are linked to the Middle Ages. Our projects include research and reconstruction of original instruments as well as sharing that knowledge to others and progressive teaching through workshops and co-operative lecture.
We are also dedicated to presentation of Medieval artifacts, especially those linked to the topic of music, therefore our group works on many different layers with a priority of concerts, instrument presentation and general knowledge sharing. More detailed information on all of the projects can be found here, at our website.
Tryzna - Against Dispassion 2016 CD
In XIII c. Europe, it was common for artist biographies to be neglected by their contemporaries. One ought to remember that throughout the Middle Ages, Europe was sunk in religious zeal. Such approach resulted in negation of the corporeal and disapproval of fame, hence anonymity of music composers. There are however certain aspects of Jacques’ work that stand out. First of all, his poetry was transcribed in vernacular French, not Latin, so it retained the original melody and rhythms. Jacques’ themes revolve around courting and love, which could have been perceived as vulgar, in any case, far from standard pious creations of the period. Also, his melodies are inconsistent.
