Oi me lasso by Gavin Bryars( Recording )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Oi Me Lasso' is representative of a series of Gavin Bryars works inspired by the unaccompanied laudes (songs of praise to the Virgin Mary) popular in the later Middle Ages, particularly the 14th century collection known as Laudes Cortonese. The laudesi who originally sang the laudes banded together in confraternities but were not usually associated with any particular church, and this music was not part of any liturgy. Composing some 50 of these modern interpretations of the laudes has become an ongoing project for Bryars, slipped in between other projects he is working on. Each lauda is dedicated to the performer(s) for whom it was written, always including soprano Anna Maria Friman
