The performance was a great success, and the group decidedd:o continue. PHOTO: MICHAEL SHAW/ASHLEY & CRIPPEN Andrea, who has a post-graduate degree in Medieval Studies and degrees in oboe performance, plays the harp, vielle, rebec, recorder and percussion, and Randall Rosenfeld, an historian who also has a degree in medieval studies, plays vielle, gittern, flute and recorder. The other members are Holly Cluett, soprano, Katherine Hill, soprano, who also plays rebec and vielle, and Bryan Martin, baritone, who also plays lute and percussion. Andrea and Randall bring a highly innovative and original approach to Medieval music, considering it a discipline more allied to ethnomusicology than contemporary performance practice. "An appreciation of the unfamiliar Western music of a thousand years ago," says Randall, "is not very different from an appreciation of the unfamiliar non-Western music of today." This perspective has several times led the ensemble to collaborations with musicians from Canada's First Nations and with Arabic classical musicians. At the heart of what Sine Nomine does, however, is Andrea and Randall's commitment to research. Their performances are based on the study of medieval musical manuscripts, the original languages, and fragmentary evidence for ornamentation, tuning systems and voice types. Where there is no available evidence, they examine contemporary related non-Western practice. Their contributions to medieval music have been internationally recognized: Sine Nomine performed at the American Musicological Society conference in Montreal in 1993, and at an International conference in Medieval studies in Leeds, England in the summer of 1995. Their CD, A Golden Treasury of Medireval Music, was released in October, 1996. Randall, Andrea and Bryan Martin will all have contributions in the upcoming edition of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Their scholarship informs rather than dominates the ensemble's performances, which in conjunction with related readings, bring the music of the past to life with an extraordinary vitality. Sine Nomine opens its season on October 30 at St. Thomas's Church with a concert of music from Medieval nunneries.
