This week, in continuing our discussion of Sea Shanty music, we listened to a piece called "Bransle de la Torche" by late renaissance composer Michael Praetorius. It is in a call & response style, much like our sea shanties. Mr. Berger shared a few video clips of this type of music being performed on instruments of that period, including recorders and the harpsichord.
Listed below are a few of the videos we viewed in class.
