The Glogau Song Book

Sabine Lutzenberger (soprano), Martin Hummel (baritone), Marc Lewon (lute), Ensemble Dulce Melos

The Glogauer Liederbuch (Glogau Song Book) is a forgotten treasure, a rich repository of 15th-century music. It contains 292 songs, devotional chants and instrumental pieces which were performed by educated enthusiasts or students, not by professional musicians. The collection also includes several pieces known as 'Schwanz' (Tail), which probably designates them as dances ('Schwanzen') being a derivation of 'tanzen' (dancing). The music sung or played in this Lower Silesian monastic community originated in many different countries, but all the pieces show a richly developed standard. The Liederbuch is the oldest known set of part-books from central Europe.

Christ ist erstanden, Der ratten schwanz, In praeclare Barbarae/O wie gern und doch entbern, Es solt ein man/All voll, Der morgenstern/Ich sach eins mals/Die nacht, Der seiden schwanz/Zu aller zeit, Elende du hast, O rosa bella, Ich bins erfreut/Die libe, Der pfauen schwanz, In feuers hitz/Ach reine zart/Mole gravati criminum, Der entrepris, Laetare Germania/Elslein liebstes Elselein, Auf rief ein hubsches freuelein/Zenner greiner Gross senen/Die welt die hat einen tummen sin, Die katzenpfote/(untitled), Nu bitten wir, Der voglein art, Die eselskrone, Tarste ich mit libe/Ach got/Der wachter
