“Boschereccia n. 3 — Il Museo della Musica”

Albumleaf 163: October 18, 2019 (Bologna)

The third boschereccia looks inward at a person’s thoughts as they register the pair of horns and harps in the sala boschereccia of the Museo internazionale e biblioteca della musica di Bologna. The sound of the horns and the harps mingles with the opening phrases of Josquin’s “Ave maria . . . virgo serena” a copy of which is in the first printed book of music, the Odhecaton A (also found in the museum). After a final horn call, a melody from the first boschereccia gets resolved.
