Product Description

Product Description

The forthcoming album Of "Kings and Angels" sees perennial favourites "Away In A Manger", "Once in Royal Davids City", "The Holly and the Ivy" and "There Is No Rose of Swych Vertu", among others, all given the inimitable Mediaeval Baebes treatment. It really showcases the breadth and brawn of this truly enigmatic vocal sextet. Mediaeval Baebes Katharine Blake (musical director), Emily Ovenden, Sarah Foster, Clare Edmondson, Esther Dee, Josephine Ravenheart, have released seven studio albums and notched up two classical No.1's. This is the follow-up to 2012's "The Huntress".

If you know the Baebes, you'll know what to expect of this album - haunting female vocals with period musical support, giving distinctive interpretations of some traditional carols. The selection here is largely mainstream rather than obscurely medieval (for that, you want their earlier album "Mistletoe and Wine" or, better for the purists, something by the Anonymous 4 or Hilliard Ensemble), but the arrangements manage a nice balance between the simple and naively sweet and some subtle but intriguing gothic twists, which will surprise no-one who remembers founder member Katharine Blake's earlier work with Miranda Sex Garden. Changing just one or two notes in the melody to change the key from major to minor or introduce an element of dissonance gives some of these tunes an eerie or even slightly sinister edge, but nothing too looming. This is an atmospheric and actually rather easier listen than some of the Baebes' work - just right for the dark winter nights.

Beautiful, played over the Christmas period whilst busy in my kitchen.
Atmospheric, and singing wonderful.
A log fire, candles, peace and quiet, and this music.
A dream of heaven.

This is probably the best Christmas album for a long time. Some nice new renditions of songs from the Baebes previous albums and great new material. Listened to this in the car quite a lot leading up to Christmas

Went to see Mediaeval Baebes in concert at Gloucester Cathedral and just had to have this DVD. It is magical - just like this unusual group.

Really beautiful traditional carols. Atmospheric and harmonious as the mediaeval baebes always are. We loved relaxing with this cd over Christmas, and singing along with a brandy on Christmas Eve. Thankyou

Wonderful carols to listen to at Christmas. Quite traditional for the Medieval Baebes and not my favourite CD of theirs but wonderful to put on while you're unwrapping your presents.
