"I am not anyone to comment on the authenticity of this music. I have no idea how accurately it represents Medieval Mediterranean music. It sounds like it does: it sounds the way I might imagine the music of the period.

Regardless, the one thing I am qualified to evaluate is my pleasure listening to it. My favorite track is the first one, the Arab kyrie. Not quite like anything I've ever heard, but I would certainly go to any church where I could hear it.

This CD has helped to whet my appetite for more such music, and I suspect it would do so for anyone. If you are shopping here, I think you should strongly consider buying this one. I would, however, direct you to two other CDs as well (reminding you that I am by no means a knowledgeable person in this field): Sufi music such as Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (though there are many other less famous examples, at least as good), and Arab Christian music, especially Marie Keyrouz. If there is a god, that is the music he hears in heaven. But excepting those two sources of superlatively uplifting music, this is among the best CDs I own. At its price, it's too good to miss."
Great CD!

"I expected to like this one, so I wasn't surprised. The Kyrie is definitely catchy. This is a terrific cd."

"I just loved the selection. I have quite a good collection of medieval and renaissance music, and I think that the Cd's selection is representative and balances well the western and eastern music tendencies."
