Music at the time of saint Francis of Assisi

In the middle of the 13th century, in Tuscany, under the influence of St Francis of Assisi, folk songs were created to praise the Incarnation and the saints. It was the time of the first "mysteries", played by the population on the forecourt of churches, the first "cribs", the processions of guilds of artisans celebrating and singing their patron saints.

From this period, we have a set of manuscripts called the "Laudario de Cortona", a set of "laudes" written in old Tuscan, and whose musical notation is that of the Gregorian (4 lines range, square notes ). These were chanted by Franciscan brotherhoods, the Laudesi, who roamed the country singing the praises of God and performing scenes from the Gospel.

By interpreting these simple and expressive works, Canti-cumNovum highlights this medi-val musical repertoire, full of poetry, sun and purezza so necessary for these Franciscan songs.
