Mridangam, South Indian, Tenor

Mridangam, South Indian, Tenor: G note length 18 inches. The South Indian Mridangam shell is made from the wood of the Jackfruit tree. The Drum has two opposing heads, bass and tenor. Overall length is approximately. It is lace tuned. This Mridangam is the principal percussion instrument in South Indian classical Carnatic music. It functions as a solo instrument, as well as an accompaniment for vocals and ensembles. Compared to the Northern Indian Mridangam, the Southern Mridangam tenor head has a wider outer tonal layer, known as karani. Sliver-thin reeds are inserted between the two layers of the tenor head to create a distinct, buzzed snare sound. A small dough paste is applied on the outside center of the bass head to achieve a low bass tone. There are no tuning blocks, although they can be inserted under the straps to increase the pitch. When played, the drum is held horizontally, and played with the fingers and palms of the hands.

Emotion and devotion

This penetrating explanation of medieval European religious experience is a revealing description of how Mary became so embedded in our culture that it is impossible to conceive of Western history without her. Draws on a wide range of sources–including music, poetry, theology, art, scripture, and miracle tales. Of three chapters the first, The Global Middle Ages, considers the current historiographical frame for the study of religious cultures and suggests ways in which our practice can be made more global. Mary, and the Others examines the polemical situations around Mary, and the location of Mustims and Jews within them. The third chapter, Emotions and Selves, tracks the sentimental education experienced by Europeans through devotional encounters with the figure of the Virgin Mary in word, image and sound. Each year one scholar of world fame is invited to present lectures in the framework of the Natalie Zemon Davis Annual Lecture Series at the Central European University, Budapest. This is the second volume in the series of published lectures.
