IV 184), written in 1669. 00:00 - I. Allegro 01:52 - II. Nachtigal (Nightingale) 03:15 - III. CuCu (Cuckoo) 03:56 - IV. Fresch (Frog) 05:06 - V. Die Henn & Der Hann (Cock & Hen) 05:41 - VI.

Allemande Sometime in the middle of the 1660s, Heinrich Biber entered the service of Count Karl von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn, who established his residence in the city of Kromeriz in Moravia and maintained an orchestra for performances in his castle. Between the beginning of his tenure at Kromeriz and his departure for Salzburg in 1670 against the Count's wishes, Biber composed a great number of instrumental works, the manuscripts of which are still housed at the Kromeriz Castle. Count Karl had a predilection for programmatic music and this was surely the impetus behind's Biber's composition of the Sonata representativa, for violin and continuo in A major. Biber's Sonata representativa is not programmatic in the nineteenth century sense, rather, the sonata "represents" the sounds of several animals. Biber took these imitative passages directly from the Musurgia Universalis, written by the musicologist Athanasius Kircher. Kircher was the first to develop a "Doctrine of Affections," which directly related psychological states to various musical devices and expressions. In Musurgia Universalis, Kircher attempted to transcribe in musical notation the sounds of animals. Biber's sonata is for solo violin with continuo, often realized with a theorbo, harpsichord, or organ, or a combination of these. Each movement runs into the next without pause. - Biber opens his Sonata representativa with a not-so-programmatic Allegro that is in AB form with a slow introduction. A dotted figure in the opening melody becomes increasingly prominent at the climax of the movement. - The "Nachtigal" movement begins with an extended, cadenza-like segment for violin alone in which the instrument imitates a nightingale through falling thirds and trills. - In "CuCu" we hear the familiar sound of the cuckoo played beneath a rapid tremolo on the violin. This high-energy movement lasts only about half a minute before moving into... - the next section, "Fresch" (Frog), in which Biber conveys the croaking of a frog by writing harmonic seconds and out-of-tune glissandos mixed with some tuneless scraping of the strings. A lyric slow passage closes the movement. - "Die Henn und der Hann" (The Cock and Hen) is a very fast, brief movement also featuring glissandos and clashing semitones. - "Die Wachtel" (Quail) provides contrast with its slow tempo and pp dynamic as it presents a reiterated dotted figure. - "Die Katz" (Cat) has a rising tune, the last note of which slides downward, evoking a cat's "meow." - The eighth movement, "Musqetir Mars" (Musketeer's March) also appears in Biber's later Battalia (1673), although somewhat altered and with the title, "Der Mars." Its drone accompaniment and percussive interjections, supporting rapid violin figurations, set it apart from the rest of the sonata. - Biber closes the sonata with a slow Allemande, in ternary form, and devoid of imitative noises.
PROGRAM NOTES: Guillaume Dufay's "Lamentation for the mother church of Constantinople" is one of the few works by a famous composer that commemorated the Fall of the Byzantine capital of Constantinople to the Ottomans in 1453. Although the Catholic See in Rome had maintained for centuries a deeply contentious relationship with the Eastern Roman Church in Constantinople, the fall of the Byzantine capitol came as a shock to Europeans who had heard about it. They saw Constantinople as the last vestige of a mythologized Roman Empire that had all but faded from Western memory by the late Middle Ages. This short, but magnificent song is a secular motet in the late French Medieval style with the Requiem (from the Latin liturgy) in the tenor line. There is some debate regarding the venue for this work. Some have speculated that it was used for the occasion of the grandiose "Banquet of the Pheasant" ordered by Phillip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, one year after the Fall. Using computer generated sounds, I am presenting two different versions of this piece. The first is a somewhat more intimate, acapella version for 4 solo voices that might have been appropriate for a small, private chamber. The second version (at time stamp 4:21 ) is a performance that one might have heard at a grand festival fit for kings where there may have been large, noisy crowds. In the second scenario, one might have heard louder instruments (such as slide trumpets and other brass instruments) accompanying a chorus that had more than one singer per part. This version, I believe, has a clearer sound than the original that I uploaded some time ago. I removed the boy soprano voice in the cantus line and replaced it with a countertenor. I think this makes for a more balanced sound with the rest of the chorus. I also added a few extra phonemes to the American English dictionary in Vocaloid to improve the pronunciation of Late Middle French. ++++++++++ French & Latin text: O très piteux de tout espoir, fontaine, Père du fils dont suis mère éplorée, Plaindre me viens à ta cour souveraine De ta puissance et de nature humaine Qui ont souffert, telle dure vilaine, Faire à mon fils qui tant m’a honorée, Dont suis de bien et de joie séparée, Sans qui vivant veuille entendre mes plaintes. À toi, seul dieu, du forfait me complains Du gref tourment et douloureux outrage Que voit souffrir plus bel des humains Sans nul confort de tout humain lignage. Tenor: Omnes amici ejus spreverunt eam Non est qui consoletur eam Ex omnibus caris ejus. English translation (from cpdl.org): Most merciful source of all hope, Father of the son whose weeping mother I am, I come to complain at your sovereign court Of your authority and of human nature, Which have allowed such harsh cruelty To be inflicted on my son, who has so honoured me; Whereby I have been parted from happiness and joy, Without any living being who will hear my complaints. To you, only God, I appeal from the sentence, From the grievous torment and painful injury That I watch the fairest of men suffer, With no consolation from your human speech. Tenor: All her friends have betrayed her: Among all her lovers there is none to comfort her. ++++++++++ Description of the photos in the order of appearance: 1.
