Track 8: Oy Comamos y Bebamos/Tourdion (15th century Spanish/French) 4:49
Barry: recorders, stone fiddle, tuned doumbeks, cornetto and clay horn
Listen to an excerpt of "Oy Comamos/Tourdion"
Well-crafted melodies are timeless. Here are a few from Renaissance Europe - a Spanish villancico and a French drinking song. The bass line is played on a series of doumbeks, or goblet drums, each tuned to a specific pitch.
