DIVISION-MUSICK

The Art Of Diminution In England In The 17th Century

Musicke & Mirth

”Division-Musick“ is a term used by Christopher Simpson during the 17th century to describe a typically English improvisatory style of diminution. Musicians generally used short bass melodies called grounds as the basis for intricate and virtuoso diminutions, beginning with simple and slow melodies over a bass melody, and ending with very fast and virtuosic diminutions after a varying number of repetitions of the melody.

Both singers and instrumentalists practiced this art of diminution, but the preferred instrument for divisions was the so-called ”division viol“.

This CD aims to give some audible insight into English virtuosity in the Baroque era.
