"Diabolis In Musica"

Author: Harry C Tuniese

In the 6th century, Pope Gregory I outlawed certain musical harmonies, which he declared “diabolis in musica,” or “the devil’s music.” It was possibly the rock ’n’ roll of the dark ages. Inspired by these high-energy folk and dance tunes, Diabolis in Musica blends medieval melodies and instrumentation, with modern and international flavors, resulting in a captivating timeless sound. The group’s repertoire is multi-cultural, drawing from ancient folk tunes, renaissance dances, ecclesiastical texts, Middle Eastern rhythms, war marches, and pop hits (hint: the title track will rock you!). They perform on a variety of authentic medieval instruments including rauschpfiefes, shawm, hurdy gurdy, bagpipe, violin, and a cache of different hand drums. This is an excellent album, specific to another era, but completely charming, disarming, and exotic. Like passing through a time tunnel back to the Middle Ages. Add the fact that the group attires themselves in the fashion of the times, well—prithee, take me to the faire. I shalt doff my cap and pen to Dave Irish, Jocelyn Demuth, Wayne Humphrey, and Sioux Gerow for creating a boisterous sound from centuries past. Yes indeed, they’re gonna party like it’s 1399.

Bio

Diabolis in musica is a street party - if that party happened in 1399 or perhaps in a gypsy encampment under a desert moon. Our music is antique but our arrangements are grounded on the assumption that people have always loved to dance and laugh.

Our name is Latin for "Using Devils in Music" (ablative plural for you Latin purists) It refers to the edict by Pope Gregory I which described certain "evil " harmonies which were banned by the church. How could we resist? We play these harmonies on bagpipes, Hurdy-gurdy, rauschpfeife as well as violin, recorder and guitar. It was the rock and roll of the dark ages. We dare you not to dance. As our album title says "Vibrabimus' - we will rock.
