Our Spring concert will feature Renaissance music of Spain and the New World.
Lauda Musicam of Austin is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 2023 to provide performance opportunities for local amateur “early music” musicians and to teach these musicians and the public about various aspects of early music. These performances are intended to help educate the public about early music and the instruments used to play it, and to attract people to become performing members of the organization and learn about performing early music.
The musicians perform on recorders, violas da gamba (viols), sackbuts, shawms, dulcians, cornetti, harps, cornamuses, crumhorns, voices, percussion and other instruments that were used during the European Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Baroque periods. The majority of music we perform will come from these periods, which roughly span the years 1300 to 1750. We will also play suitable music from other eras and regions of the world from time to time. We aren’t snobbish about it — it’s just we really enjoy the music from those periods of European history.
Give eare to the clocke
Time makes golden locks turn gray, morning turn to night, and winter turn to spring. Lauda Musicam of Austin looks to past composers to see how they pondered time.
