From the personal studio of Fugli comes Huzzah Worship, the worship music collection for the Renaissance faire crowd. Hum and sing along to melodies and songs from the past interspersed with comedic send ups of religious life in Medieval and Renaissance times. If you find humor in the history of the Christian Church, or just wish you could, then this is the collection for you.
Be Thou My Vision
The Reformation Polka
Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
A Special Blessing
Fugli is a pseudo-medieval musician, scribe and artificer. With layered levels of simple instruments, his sounds are often uniquely archaic. While some of of his music is entirely original, many of his tracks are personal arrangements of renaissance and medieval melodies from antiquity.

Musically, the highlights for me on this album were #3, "St. Edith" and #9, "Dayenu". This doesn't mean that the playing is not as good on the other tracks, just that these stand out to me as being a cut above the rest. Definitely better than you would hear from the normal musician at any Renaissance faire.
The album starts out with a nod to Uncle Sam and the Army meets Monty Python with "The Inquisition". This mock advertisment almost makes you want to sign up.
The humor continues with #4, "Reliquary", which gives you the opportunity to buy your own piece of the true cross, or a piece of Mary's dress (in blue of course). Also #7, "Crazy Leo" is worth a listen if you are interested in a trip to the Holy Land.
Overall this album has a lot of humor, and great musicianship. While these songs lend themselves more torwards a Renaissance faire-goer's music collection, it is good enough to be in any collection that contains humorous music, or any that has music created with instruments from the past.
We need more music like this on regular radio, so please click on "Buy". You won't be dissapointed.
