On Saturday we met Jude in the Reinvention Centre at Warwick. She gave us a wonderful presentation of her medieval instruments and we had a short medieval bagpipe workshop!
We also set about trying to figure out how to use some of the instruments in performances of some Crusade songs. Below is our first attempt at singing through 'Chevalier, mult estes guaritz' with a harp, drum and soprano shawm.

For all those who are planning to come to this week's music session (Wednesday 2-7pm in the Humanities Studio), here are some links to versions of songs that we should be covering:
(I can never make up my mind whether I like this modern version or not! Let me know what you think)
Do feel free to bring any instruments that you might like to introduce into the mix. But don't worry if its just you and your voice. And if you can't make the whole session, just come for a little bit!
