"Not being a scholar of Medieval music, the only expectation I brought to this album was hopeing for something different from all the same tunes we have all heard a million times. This album generally hit the mark for me. I REALLY love the first track, Nova Stella, and the fourth track is very good too. However the rest of the songs were a bit too chant like for me. I cannot dispute to ability or interpretive accuracy of the preformers, but for a layman, they didn't quite do it for me. It was almost worth paying $(...) for two songs."
