7 Hills Renaissance Wind Band: Music from the Regensburg Manuscript

  • St. Peter's Church 320 Boston Post Road Weston, MA (map)

One of the most important collections of wind repertoire from the sixteenth century is Regensburg BZ A.R. 775-777, a set of partbooks containing a selection of motets and madrigals by some of the top composers of the day. What makes it stand out from similar collections are the annotations, presumably made by the performers themselves, that detail specific instrumentation for many of the pieces  all some combination of cornetti (zinge), shawms (pommer), and sackbuts (posaune). We are excited to welcome Amherst Early Music's beautiful new performance edition of pieces from this manuscript into our repertoire.

Matthew Groves (sackbut), Elizabeth Hardy (shawm, dulcian & recorder), Motoaki Kashino (sackbut), Rigel Lustwerk (cornetto), Liza Malamut (sackbut & recorder), Daniel Meyers (sackbut & recorder), Catherine Stein (shawm, dulcian & recorder), Matthew Stein (dulcian), & Daniel Stillman (shawm, dulcian & recorder).
