Music of the Middle Ages: Songs, Laments and Dances CD

This CD is full of music found in medieval manuscripts that evokes the age of chivalry and courtly love. Over an hour in length, this richly varied program  includes plain chant and instrumental pieces played on a psaltery (small harp) and portative organ of the kind often seen in medieval paintings.

Performed by the Monks and Novices of St. Frideswide and the Oxford Girls Choir, these music specialists have transformed the feint dots, lines and markings of a series of medieval manuscripts into fine sounds: with good tunes and rhythms, this music is both touching and exciting to hear.
