GUEST,Some bloke Playing medieval music medievally (83* d) RE: Playing medieval music medievally 20 Sep 18

Just seen the thread again.

I notice Jack Campin pulled me up by assuming I donít know baroque from medieval. I do wish people didnít purposely misread what others put in order to look smug. This is Mudcat, not some political social media.

I said that Gardiner (who happens to be a bit of a wizard when it comes to baroque in the opinion of many) believes that music (I didnít note any genre or specific time period) has decreased tempo over the years and we tend to play most pieces slower than they were originally scored. It was an observation that is relevant to the thread, whereas noting the specialism of the scholar in question isnít as he widens his observation beyond his genre.
