Album · 2009 · 22 Songs. De fragilitate et miseriis: Cum sit omnis caro foenum. 15. De vita scholastica: Scholares convenite. 16. De vita scholastica: Zachaeus arboris.
De Fragilitate; Piae cantiones. The Piae Cantiones (1582) is Finland's one and only collection of early music and reflection of Europe s medieval musical heritage. Zefiro Torna performs these beautiful carols, devote and student songs with 15th-16th century instruments and includes a children's choir. The discrete but charming use of a kantele introduces a Finnish-ing touch to the sound. The majority of the compositions belongs to the Germanic-Bohemian cantio tradition. The Antwerp Cathedral boy's and girl's choir is attached to the hedraal in Antwerp and provides music for the cathedral's services almost every week of the year. The choir's agenda is also well-filled with concerts both in Belgium and abroad; they also make a yearly concert tour outside Belgium. Disc: 1. 1. De Navitate. 3. De Fragilitate et miseriis.
De Fragilitate: Piae Cantiones (16th Century) Hymns from Mediaeval Finland De Nativitate : (Angelus emittitur ; Salve flos et decor ; Verbum caro factum est ; Congaudeat turba fidelium ; Parvulus nobis nascitur ; Personent hodie ; Nobis est natus hodie ; Paranymphus adiens ) De Passione : (Iucundare iugiter . .Evidence that the Piae Cantiones were an attempt to preserve a perhaps threatened local tradition of music hitherto transmitted only (or largely) orally is in the two republications within a few years - one in Finnish in 1616, a second again in Latin nine years after that; and many more before long. The performances are first class: Zefiro Torna performs on period instruments (from the 15th and 16th centuries), including the kannel (Estonian) or kantele (Finnish), a zither, or dulcimer.

Piae Cantiones ecclesiasticae et scholasticae veterum episcoporum (in English Pious ecclesiastical and school songs of the ancient bishops) is a collection of late medieval Latin songs first published in 1582. It was compiled by Jacobus Finno, a clergyman who was headmaster of the cathedral school at Turku. Publication was undertaken by Theodoricus Petri Rutha of Nyland, who lived from about 1560 to about 1630. He came from an aristocratic family in Finland, and was educated at Rostock.
De Fragilitate: Piae Cantiones. Ensemble, Primary Artist. Liesbet Vereertbrugghen.
About half of the songs are believed to be of Finnish origin, as they have not been found in other sources; other songs came from France, England, Germany and Bohemia.
