Couple this bargain priced box set with the Carmina Burana Ensemble Unicorn shares with Oni Wytars (also on Naxos) and you're off to a very good start collecting early music. Collects 5 of their other Naxos releases. All on authentic period instruments, vocal stylings etc. This isn't some rock band like Richie Blackmore trying to sound medieval. The tune "Mari Stanko" on the "Medieval Pilgrim" set is worth the price of the whole shebang alone. Intense stuff, and hard to believe these songs are hundreds of years old.

This box-set offers the listener five CDs of Medieval music. Two CDs are instrumental, two are religious and one is comprised of folk songs. This is music that flourished amid extreme darkness, when war and disease dominated the European landscape.

What is revealed here is a wide range of emotions from merriment and joy, to profound sorrow, to solemn piety. It reminds me of a documentary I once saw on the "Black Death" where it was expressed that as the bubonic plague ravaged Europe, some took refuge in the church as they prepared to meet their judgement; and others took to earthly pleasures, as they ate and drank and danced as if there was, literally, "no tomorrow".

It's unfortunate that Medieval and Renaissance music is often perceived to be dull and archaic.

As this product shows, the music of the Middle Ages could be quite dynamic in a number of ways.

This is another sweet deal from the good people of NAXOS recordings.
