Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Only the smallest amount of medieval music survives: musicians and composers were largely anonymous and their work often went unrecorded. But thankfully a handful of manuscripts have come down to us, filled with rich and varied music for instruments and voices on touching themes which tell the stories of the boy Christ and his mother, Mary.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Nicholas Perry, William Lyons (hurdy-gurdy, pipes, shawm, recorder).
