Amusements of Good Government. Micrologus at Festival Villa Solomei

MicrologusThe Ensemble Micrologus – one of the most important groups in the study and revival of early music – celebrates thirty years of activity with a number of very important initiatives. The event that had the most resonance is undoubtedly the publication of “The ways of the sacred”, the double album released in recent months, which has merged a selection of repertoire related to the tradition of singing the Passion (“Devote Passioni. Laude e soni nelle feste religiose aquilane, secc. XV-XVI”) and Laudi (“Cum desiderio vo cercando. Laude e musica sacra a Venezia e Firenze, secc. XIII-XVI”). But the activity of the ensemble, which has always ranged between heterogeneous materials, often proposing possible comparisons between ancient and oral tradition repertoires, is very oriented to teaching and live music. In the latter case, the shows put on by Micrologus are always intertwined with music and cultural context within which you can frame – based on research and careful studies – expressive productions. It is also the case of the show “The amusements of Good Government”, which will be staged on July 5 in the prestigious Villa Solomei Festival, the festival that takes place in Solomeo (in the province of Perugia) and that has a billboard with artists of international importance. “The amusements of Good Government” are taken from “The Saporetto” of Simone de ‘Prodenzani from Orvieto, a text of the early fifteenth full of references to the musical practices of that period, in which they are recognizable even some “ideals of peace and well-being, its a civic perfectissima, while in reality the battle raged between political and religious Guelphs and Ghibellines”.

Some details about the show can be found here. While the program of the festival can be found here.
