Magister Petrus, “O admirabile Veneris “

“O admirabile Veneris”

From the CD “Vacillantis – Music in the Twelfth-Century Renaissance”

Social, Sensual, and Spiritual Medieval Art Songs

The development of the Latin art song (cantio, vers) during the Romanesque period is one of the most important elements of the intellectual tradition of the 12th-century renaissance. During this period clerics educated in cathedral schools and universities throughout Europe created exquisite poetry and music to express their points of view and concerns about their religious and secular society. These clerics saw themselves as moderni and hoped to create a “modern world” combining the knowledge and poetry of the pagan authors of Antiquity with a strong sense of Christian spirituality and propriety. Thus, their music represents the social and cultural movement that planted the germ of our modern intellectual and political tradition.

In the program Vacillantis Magister Petrus recreates the sound, feeling, and art of the Romanesque Latin song. The program showcases satirical, love, and dance-songs performed inside churches. (Source:
