Format: Audio CD
This is a pleasant little album to listen to. It's a bit hard to categorise - it isn't out-and-medieval/Renaissance music, it certainly isn't pop, but yet it's not really a crossover. What it is though, is a good introduction to a form of singing which has been sorely neglected - old church music, folk songs, and especially something approaching their original language, pronunciation etc. OK, the pedants among you may not appreciate the fact that it is sung by a group of pretty young women, most of whom have little musical training - you must remember that folk sings were sung by normal people; not that I'm knocking the quality of singing - there is something heart-rendingly delightful about the pure female voice - vibrato-free, with no pretensions or yearnings to sing Verdi or whatever. There is a fair amount of Christian music in here, but surely that is because people's Christian belief was a major part of their lives in the period involved, and many composers were in the employment of cathedrals and churches. If you are worried by the Christian content - don't be. This music is chosen for its beauty, not for its religious message. I challenge you to listen to Veni, Veni Emmanuel and not be captivated.

This is a beautiful albul full of haunting melodies coupled with exiting, rawcous sining. The medieaval excerpts themselves are extremely interesting and entertaining and they helped me in no end with the studying of A Level English! This album may not be as accesible as later Baebes albums but it remains bt far the purist and most overtly classical of the three. I would not hesitate to reccomend this album to anyone - with the exception of the classical purists. I would say however that the first Mediaeval Baebes album a newcomer should by is either their 'Best of' or Worldes Blysse which is the more accesable of the three. By the way I also listen to Hole, My Ruin, Nirvana and Deftones so dont be put off if you dont usually buy classical music. This is a perfect Christmas of birthday present for anyone and the Baebes are particularly captivating and intruiging particularly Audrey Evans who has a beautiful singing voice but is often overlooked in favour of the founder Katharine Blake ( who also has a good voice I'm not saying she's overrated!). Particular songs to look out for are Fowles in the Frith, Miri it Is, Salva Nos, AH Si Mon Moine and This Ay Nicht. Enjoy!

This CD is one of the few in my collection that actually makes me put down my book to listen to it. It's absolutely brilliant, the voices all blend together superbly whether they are unaccompanied or accompanied by atmospheric music.

I'm no expert on medieval music but I really did enjoy this album. A refreshing change and rather soothing too.

I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone to buy this as their first Mediaeval Baebes CD. It's nowhere near as accessible as, say, Undrentide. The majority of tracks are religious (Christian, that is) in content, from Christmas carols ("Coventry Carol", "Veni, Veni") to funeral dirges ("Lyke Wake Dirge") and frankly the album doesn't display the range or sheer pagan fun of their later offerings. I wouldn't describe "Salva Nos" as "dross" but certainly would suggest listening to some of the Baebes' later recordings before making a decision on whether to buy any more of their material. Some of the tracks on this album are definitely an acquired taste. Once you've acquired the taste, you'll want to hear them again, though!

If you want listening to stylized mediaeval music, you must have this album. I like history of middle ages, and music of this time too. Compared to another similiar music (Gny, Fidelius, etc.) this is very good.
