To our friends in EEMF and all other lovers of early music:

Online Early Music Forum (OEMF)

Music in lockdown with Jamulus

Most of us know that making music over the internet is not possible with systems
like Zoom, (because of something called latency). People have been singing their
parts solo, then mixing them into video performances.

Well, now we can make real harmony online. We have been testing
Jamulus, which minimizes latency and enables us to sing or play
together in very nearly the usual way. We’d love you to join us

Install Jamulus and run it.

Press ‘Connect; then press ‘Listand choose Genre Classical/Folk/Choir

Choose OEMF from the list and Connect.

There is a ‘Chatfeature in case you are not being heard or
don’t want to interrupt.

Meet on Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 6 pm.

Jamulus has excellent documentation, helpful discussion fora and a
download page. Start here. Setting it up can be straightforward or a
struggle, depending on what technology you have. The community
is extremely helpful for those who need it. The software has versions for
Windows, Mac and Linux and a brand new
Jamulus OS.

Music can be fun again!

An endorsement from Rick Fitzsimmons of SWEMF:
There's a group of us have been playing sackbuts and cornetts ...,
numbers varying between 4 and 7 so far, using a Google
cloud hosted server and clients Mac, Windows, Linux and
Jamulus OS. It's definitely worth the effort!

Dear All,

I’m a music scholar with over 40 years’ experience aiming to start a small
ensemble whose repertory will consist solely of unpublished fifteenth century
Latin sacred music plus a little Gregorian chant. I seek two or three female voices
who have a certain level of sightreading and who have strong clear voices and
who don’t normally use vibrato. I also seek one Tenor / Baritone with an
equally clear voice and the same sightreading capability. If interested,
apply by email to

If I get the “right people” I plan to start the ensemble with try-out
rehearsals at a private Ipswich address. Unfortunately I cannot pay people
for taking part. I envisage a start-up period later this year during which
rehearsals will probably be fortnightly, & probably on Monday nights.
This is a wonderful journey of musical discovery for anybody who likes the
sound of Dufay, Dunstable etc. because the largely anonymous music that I
want to have performed is very similar to their works.

Thanks for your attention. Bob Mitchell
