Notes & Reviews:

The Medieval centuries sparked both the artistic Renaissance and the religious Reformation that followed. The time is rich with history but is it musically lost? Buildings and statues endure, but how do we know what music of the Medieval and Renaissance world sounded like? From evidence that remains, modern performers set about recreating the earliest music from Europe. Discover the past through this 2 CD set and 110 page booklet.
