The mediaeval baebes second album seems to be deeper in content than Salva Nos: the purity of the vocals remains, but the songs have more complex arrangements & instrumental parts. In particular, the song 'Kinderly' is very special

I think this album is even better than their first and seems to have a little more variety...There is a great deal to enjoy here and as for the classical snobs they are the blinkered equivalent of the rock or other musical genre snobs-Mediaeval singers were often people who just sang,not stars who sang for millions when music was often a kind of spiritual celebration for Pagan or Christian...Really,It's not karaoke-It's lovely feminine voices chanting the preclassical songs and melodies of our much tougher and rougher ancestors and there are too many gems to pick out and fave's are too personal to the critic...My own tastes run from thrash to Bach cello Konzerte and Folk but this wonderful,magical set fits in fine and frankly intrigues my musical imagination-Very dreamy,even psychedelic and great folky tunes scattered throughout its lengthy and lyrical weave-there is an overlap in this preclassical era of European music with monotheistic church music and pagan folk music as if two classes were bonding into a nationality and the Baebes albums beautifully mingle those historic sonic elements on this outing in particular-Most Excellent,I recommend it.

A lot of people dislike the Medieval Baebes for being supposedly pretentious and beloved by pseudo-romantic Goth types - but that's basically just musical snobbery. I mean, come on - with a name like 'The Medieval Baebes', who's stupid enough to actually think they're aiming to appeal to lifelong Medieval Music scholars?

Really, you get far more out of them if you stop thinking of them in relation to other classical music and just love them for what they are - which is accessible, charming and unpretentious Medieval-esque choral loveliness.

The middle-english (or occasionally Latin) lyrics will probably not make sense to your average listener - (best to look at the sleeve notes before you attempt a sing-along!), but if you're familiar with the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gowere, William Dunbar etc, you'll start to spot the patterns in the language. You certainly don't need to know any middle-english to appreciate this, though - just listening to the overall, faery-like, dreamy effect is more than enough.

The tone and pace of the music is quite varied - some tracks are fast, slightly folky (anyone who likes traditional Scottish/Irish Ceilidh music might spot the odd link here) and with an almost dance-able beat, others are ethereal, slow, lamentation-type songs ('Swete Sonne' for one). I've heard other Baebes cds work in a bit more of an electronic, synthesiser feel to the music, but this seems to be made with almost exclusively traditional folky instruments and straightforward singing.

Virtually all of it has a basically religious Christian theme, but that's just symptomatic of the thought of the Medieval age.

Having recently discovered a whole bunch of Medięval Bębes albums, and bought them at the same time, I am a little overcome. But there is nothing here that fails to delight. Buy this album. Ye shall not regret it forsooth.
