Travellers' Tapestry / Cantigas
This anthology inspired by the mediæval centres of barter and exchange grouped along the busy trade routes, reflects the gathering together of people not only from Europe but also Asia and the Middle East and the resulting exchange of musical culture and ideas.
Includes instrumental arrangements of Machaut, The Cantigas de Santa Maria, pieces from Tibet, Syria, Japan, Germany, France, Spain and Constantinople performed on percussion, recorder and mediæval string instruments.
