All the songs in this group have been shown as being written before (or right around) 1700 A.D. Any background notes on each will help with verification sources and give any additional historical information.

We need songs for this group! Know of more songs that should be here?

 

The term Medieval music includes European music written during the Middle Ages. This era begins with the tall of te Roman Empire (476 AD) and ends approximately at the middle of the 15th century.

Guido d'Arezzo was a monk and music teacher. He also developed names for six notes based on a popular Latin hymn called Ut queant laxis. Guido used the first two letters of the first words in each line to name the corresponding notes: ut-re-mi-fa-sol-la.

·The troubadours (from the south of France) and the trouvères (from the north of France) were professional, aristocratic poet-musicians. They composed songs about love and nature. They often accompanied themselves on a lute, harp, fiddle or recorder. Typical subjects of trobaudors song were war, chivalry and cortly love.


·The language of the trobaudors was occitan.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.

 

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.

 

Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
