Product details

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.

Press Quotes

“intricate rhythmic support, and bright, individual instrumental colours will attract everyone, interested in early music or not ... a nicely balanced sequence of subtle, individual and very satisfying miniatures”
