New Medieval German Music

« previous episode | next episode »

Monday, May 18, 2009

For this New Sounds, take a new look at the medieval German music, especially the Carmina Burana - the surprisingly earthy songs by monks which inspired Carl Orff's famous oratorio of that name. Listen to takes on these songs from a brand new record by John Potter and The Dowland Project. There's also something from the Berry Hayward Consort, music from Estampie, and more.
