Adieu mes Amours
The concert by Super Librum took place during a symposium (6 – 8 June 2013) about Medieval organs that was organised by the Orgelpark in Amsterdam.
The concert was titled: 'Adieu mes Amours', and included 15th century songs from France, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands and versions of these songs for organ and other instruments.


Late medieval organs

Two recent reconstructions of late medieval organs: a positive organ and a church organ play a central role in the concert.
