Estampies & Danses Royales - The King's Manuscript

Hespèrion XXI, Jordi Savall

Brilliantly engineered, the contrasts of colours, play with textures and mix of timbres infuse the disc with vitality. 5/5 — BBC Music 

Vigorous and colourful medieval dances revealed by Jordi Savall! The Estampie is a medieval dance consisting of four to seven sections, called puncta, each of which is repeated (in the form aa, bb, cc, etc...).The more widely accepted etymology relates it to stamper, to stamp the feet.

Illuminations and paintings from the period seem to indicate that the estampie involves fairly vigorous hopping. The earliest reported example of this musical form is the song "Kalenda Maya" (track 3), supposedly written by the troubadour Raimbaut de Vaqueiras (1180-1207) to the melody of an estampida played by French jongleurs. In this irresistible album, Jordi Savall explores a Royal manuscript from the French National Library
