This is going to be a short one today, mainly because I completely lost all sense of time whilst listening to the recording of Busnoys work.
In a number of cases the losing of time is a positive thing. Like how you suddenly realise you are an hour into watching Gone With The Wind and remark how quickly time flew or how, when watching Beauty & The Beast, you get to 20 minutes in and are amazed at how much they have packed in.
No, with this I got to about an hour in (I was listening to this in the office) and thought I had looped around to the beginning again.
This is the problem with listening to a bunch of music intended for masses. I can’t imagine the masses of the 1400s being the liveliest or most varied of occasions when it comes to music. I get this. The thing is that when I was envisioning this list as an addition I didn’t realise the wealth of religious music (yes, I am that dumb apparently).
Next week I am jumping ahead to Chopin because of Your Lie In April. I need piano music now!
