CULTURE / Vermell puts music in the ‘art of dying’ in the Middle Ages


During its appointment with MOMUA, the community will reveal some aspects of the daily lives of the men and women of the time. He will also put music on the ‘Walks in the Cemetery’ initiative, which will take place today at 22:00.

The presentation of the Spanish Association of Music History Professors will take place tomorrow at 13:15 at MUDEM.

Molina de Segura is preparing for the second weekend with the concept of ‘Ars Moriendi’ or ‘the art of dying’ and ancient music takes the lead. With this title, MOMUA receives the program of the Vermell ensemble from Granada, which specializes in bringing music into medieval history and the everyday aspects of these men and women. “Our program will follow all these reflections of the death theme in European medieval music,” says Abigail R. Horro, Vermell conductor, singer and multi-instrumentalist. Rather than catching a dark program, the ensemble, in which life and death will take place in their melodies, makes a musical analysis of this perception of that period, while making it clear that “the medieval world saw death differently from us”.

This mission of the ensemble, “to illuminate death to tell history”, will be reflected in the first music event to be held today, thanks to the routes organized by the Ministry of Tourism’s ‘Walking in the Cemetery’ program. So Vermell will put a soundtrack to the stories told by Molinense writer Paco López Mengual, along with excerpts from his show, before more than 200 people sign up for this event. It will be the Medieval Wall Settlement Museum (MUDEM), which will receive its ensemble at 20:30 tomorrow.

“For Vermell, being at MOMUA marks a pivotal moment in our development as a band, because from our point of view, in a country where we are extremely fortunate to have a large number of festivals specializing in high-quality early music, MOMUA is in the best of its own. Abigail praises parallel programming such as exhibitions, lectures and courses taught by highly specialized teachers from both the national and international scene, and access to this program is not always easy. adds.

There will be two days where anyone interested can enter a review of the theoretical and theoretical working historiography of known female composers throughout the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque by pre-registering at application. As the director puts it, this course will be “a meeting place to teach in this genre of music that is not offered by organized teachings”.
