Late medieval Italian Laude
"Canto Novello" - these songs emerged from a spiritual and social renewal, but above all, represent the flourishing of a new musical innovation: A melting pot of the age-old musical traditions of
the Christian Church interwoven with the rich and abundant poetry of the people - unique, vivid, and captivating.
The ensembles Ars Choralis Coeln and Oni Wytars collaborated specifically for this project, joining their distinct areas of expertise - enchanting vocal sound combined with spirited instrumental
virtuosity - to revive the multi-faceted sound of a vernacular spiritual music originating in fourteenth-century northern Italian cities: In the spirit of the Laudesi fraternities, indeed!
