Ensemble Micrologus

Ensemble Micrologus is an Italian group of medieval music, vocal and instrumental, including both religious and secular pieces from 12th to 16th century in their repertoire.

It is formed by Patricia Bovi (vocals and harp), Adolfo Broegg (lute, psaltery and citola), Goffredo Degli Esposti (flute, bombarde and bagpipes), Ulrich Pfeifer (vocals and hurdy gurdy) and Gabriele Russo (viela, rebec and lyre). It was founded in 1984, shortly after its components participated for several years in the "Calends of May" medieval festival in Assisi (Umbria).

They perform more than forty concerts worldwide, introducing one or two new shows every year. Through the years they have performed more than twenty different ones. In their performances they use reconstructions of ancient instruments, as well as of wardrobe and scenery. They also give medieval music courses in the Festival of Urbino, the Royaumont Abbey and the Cité de la Musique in Paris.

Some received prizes:
