A collection of songs, dances, devotional pieces, and instrumental realizations from medieval England, encompassing the 12th through the early 14th centuries.
Despite much damage done to the manuscript sources, and much music being lost, what little medieval English music that does survive gives us a rare and precious glimpse into what must have been a vibrant musical culture.
On this recording, medieval scholar and musician Tim Rayborn presents some of this variety on reconstructions of medieval instruments, as well as with the voice. Joined by the prodigious musical talents of Annette Bauer, Phoebe Jevtovic, Shira Kammen, and Susan Rode Morris, this recording captures the spirit of a time long past.
Tim Rayborn: voice, harp, psaltery, percussion, lute, symphonie
