Product details

'Joy' refers to the intent and inspiration that underlies so much of the music on this disc. From the piety and reverence of the carols, the longing and even bitterness of Landini and Machaut, to the soaring, joyous beauty of Hildegarde von Bingen, the effect and intent of this music is ultimately to uplift the soul.

This collection of devotional music gives us an appreciation of how music formed the backdrop to people's lives in the Middle Ages.
