Jubilatores CD recordings

The Jubilatores is a performing ensemble specializing in secular music of the Middle Ages.

The Jubilatores, pronounced you-be-la-TOR-ez, perform secular music of 10th through 15th Century Europe. The ensemble regales listeners with the romance of the Troubadours to the mysticism of Alfonso X's Spanish court, all played on beautiful medieval instrument reproductions (modern pitch - A 440) including lutes, guitarras, fyddles, flutes, harp, psaltery, and drums. From background music, to toe-tapping dance, to educational performances, the Jubilatores perform in costumes of the period, bringing listeners, young and old, a musical and visual journey to the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.

Founded in 1984, the Jubilatores have performed for universities, colleges, schools, libraries, weddings, and private parties. Patrons of note include San Diego State University, the San Diego Opera Guild, San Diego Early Music Society, the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, the Charter One Hundred of La Jolla, Ambassador Larry Lawrence, Comic Con, Toledo main library, and the Toledo Art Museum.

The Jubilatores musical instrument collection is extensive. Barry Ebersole is an instrument maker of exceptional skill. His instruments are soon to be a featured exhibit at the Toledo Art Museum. Reproductions of Medieval instruments and some rare antiques are featured in performances.

The founders/directors of the Jubilatores moved to Toledo Ohio in 1997. Toledo area performances include several presentations at the Toledo Art Museum.
