The first Sonuscore phrase library focusing on plucked instruments, MEDIEVAL PHRASES LUTE & THEORBO brings you into a world of classic imagination, booming with bards and taverns, questing knights, and roving robber barons and bandits.
In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the bards in courts and taverns constantly needed new ways to inspire their audiences. People looked back to the ancients for their inspiration, whether in science or medicine, or in music. The Ancient Greeks tapped into the divine in their epic recitations accompanied by the lyre and kithara. It was only natural that during the late medieval times – when all things ancient were coming into fashion again – that the lute and theorbo would take a centerpiece.
The MEDIEVAL PHRASES LUTE & THEORBO brings back that flair of medieval castles and the inspiring spirit of the Renaissance, transporting you to rustic pubs and medieval markets, from Homer’s epics to the court of the Medicis. The light, heavenly plucks of the lute are richly accented by the deep voice of the theorbo, perfect for period pieces, experimental music, or ambient dwellings.
The phrases are all recorded in the darker tones of the Natural Minor and Dorian modes. They are meant to inspire the rhythm and movement of the Middle Ages. The zest and dynamic focus on rhythm means they can fit into more projects than simple lyrical phrases. Attila plays his lute and theorbo freely with passion, engaging every listener and transporting them back to taverns of old, with their bards and brawls.
The first Sonuscore plucked phrase-based instrument, MEDIEVAL PHRASES LUTE & THEORBO transports all the energy and intrigue of the Middle Ages into your fingertips. The recordings are in Natural Minor and Dorian modes, including plucks (with 3 round robins), tremolos, a variety of trills – most recorded with 2 round robins.
