Canzon Est-ce Mars que je vois
Gagliarda la Battaglia

In the early 17th Century the ’Guard of the Battlement’ was not only the watchman but more like the Town Piper as he had to communicate with his fellow guardians by acoustic signals. Town councils soon realized that these talents could be used for prestige purposes. This boosted the reputation of the town pipers along with prominent musicians of the day such as Praetorius and Scheidt. This recording demonstrates the spectacular sound effects and expertise of these fine musicians. Capella de la Torre on period instruments bring to life this exciting music.
