saeculorum - five centuries of medieval music

We set ourselves the pleasurable task of featuring four tunes from each of the five centuries for which we have substantial repertoire - so Saeculorum covers from c1000 to c1500 AD.  It was also an opportunity to include some music from our back catalogue of which we are still very fond - so you'll find 'Orientis Partibus' from our 1998 'Medieval & Renaissance Music' (our first ever recording, which was released on CD and TAPE!) Also on Saeculorum is 'Pensis chief, enclin' from our discontinued 'Por Mon Corage' and 'L'homme armé', recorded in 2008 for a fifteenth-century project that never finally happened. It is simply too good not to get an airing!

outremer - beyond the sea
 
In a departure from our usual style, Outremer features modern compositions with many medieval tunes included, performed on a mixture of medieval and modern instruments. Paul's compositions for Outremer took as their jumping-off point the theme of the crusades.

medievalia - a medieval musical miscellany
 
Four compositions each themed on a particular aspect of medieval music and drawing heavily on the original sources. Only period instruments have been used. The four themes are (1) the music of the Ludus Danielis, (2) the dances of the Chansonnier du Roi, (3) the Cantigas de Santa Maria, and (4) music of the Italian trecento

the medieval instrumentarium - all our instruments!
 
Featuring every one of the medieval instruments we had in our possession at the time of recording! The Medieval Instrumentarium covers music from the ninth century to the end of the fifteenth century, with each piece played on instruments suitable for the time. So it's a great survey of the changing sounds and styles of medieval music. Check out our accompanying videos on YouTube for loads more background information on this major project!

magna melodia - music from the time of the magna carta
