IV Early Music Morellavolver


The academic dimension of Capella de Ministrers is condensed with the realization of Early Music Morella. From tradition to cult music, combining musical practice with theory is created the International Course on Medieval and Renaissance Music Early Music Morella. A specialized course in the repertoire of the 10th to 16th centuries, in order to alleviate the shortage of specialized studies in this particular repertoire. The 4th edition of Early Music Morella focuses on the Mysticism, as a natural universal experience to the Three Cultures, in which music is crucial to transport the knowledge and the senses. Coinciding with the 700th anniversary of the death of the Kabbalist and Theologian Raymond Lully, and the 500th anniversary of the birth of St. Teresa of Avila, Early Music Morella 2015 will deal with the intercultural concept of Mysticism, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. Troubadours, Gregorian chant, religious and court music, ars nova and ars subtilior, music of the Three Cultures, historical dance... In short, everything that, from the birth of Gregorian chant to the latest Renaissance polyphony, could be heard in the West, taking special attention to the musical corpus of the Crown of Aragon. Recover, interpret, preserve and disseminate our musical heritage to know the social and cultural history of our oldest history, fundamental objective of the International Course on Medieval and Renaissance Music Early Music Morella. We are preaparing IV edition of the course, that will be presented in early 2015.


The additional activities of the course that will develop around this are: exhibitions by instrument makers, lectures by specialists elaborating on the relationship between and historical relevance of St. Vincent Ferrer and the Papa Luna, and on diverse aspects of Medieval and Renaissance music, student concerts by the different course sections, a night tour to the medieval castle, and the concerts of the Festival of Medieval and Renaissance Music, which will take place in the Gothic Town Hall of Morella, the Archpriestal Church of St. Mary (built in 1265-1330, and housing an original Baroque organ by Turull), and the Convent of St. Francis (founded in 1272), whose surviving Gothic cloister's chapter house features a 15th century mural painting representing the Medieval dance of death (Dansa de la Mort), which is the leitmotif of the course from its birth. Furthermore, the present edition includes a seminar on traditional music and its relationship with Medieval and Renaissance art music, with specialists on instruments and repertories belonging to the Mediterranean oral traditions.
