leeneia Playing medieval music medievally (83* d) RE: Playing medieval music medievally 22 Sep 18


Wrong tempo? Why assume that medieval pieces had a right tempo? Tempo probably varied from place to place, with the skill of the players, with the quality of their instruments, and (esp. with dance music) with the age and skill of the dancers.

In the case of a song melody with more than one set of words, sad words probably went slower than happy words.
