Thomas Binkley and Orientalism in the Early Music Movement
In this episode the trio discusses the influence that Middle Eastern traditions may or may not have had on the development of European medieval music, and what modern re-creators of the music (like Thomas Binkley) have learned from studying those traditions. In particular we discuss Binkley's "On the Modern Performance of Medieval Monophonic Repertory," Jonathan Shull's "Locating the Past in the Present: Living Traditions and the Performance of Early Music," Kirsten Yri's "Thomas Binkley and the Studio der Frühen Musik: challenging 'the myth of Westernness," and John Haines's "The Arabic Style of Performing Medieval Music." Mentioned in the episode: musical selections by Boston Camerata; Sequentia; New York Pro Musica; Studio der Frühen Musik; more Studio; AltramarSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/trobarmedieval)

Conversations with Christine de Pizan
In this episode we revisit A Room of Her Own, a program that we created around the 15th-century French poet and self-proclaimed defender of women, Christine de Pizan. We discuss Christine's world and the intellectual battles that she fought, why she appealed to us as 21st-century musicians, and the process behind creating this program. Musical selections were taken from a live performance of the program in Cleveland in 2019:Belle, bonne, sage - Baude Cordier, fl. early 15th c.Ave Regina Caelorum - Anon, Girona Cathedral, 14th c.Corps feminin - Solage, fl. late 14th c.Je puis trop bien - Guillaume de Machaut, c. 1300-1377Faus semblant - Anon, Royal 12 C. 6Medée fu - Anon., Canonici 213Filles a marier - Gilles Binchois, c. 1400-1460Pour vous tenir - Pierre Fontaine, c. 1380-1450Dueil angoisseus - BinchoisGloria... et in terra pax - Nicolas Grenon, c. 1375-1456Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/trobarmedieval)
