"This item did not contain what I had hoped. There is mostly instrumental music which is pretty, but, most of the latter tracks are basically the same with variations. The CD's title makes it sound like you are buying a good deal of medieval music, but in fact, only the first few tracks are medieval, 12th century in fact, while all the other pieces are 17th century and up, which is post renaissance and well nigh into the classical period. Only the first 5 tracks or so are what you bought the CD for.
In my opinion, if you are looking for medieval music, this is not the CD for you."

"The vivid and fast paced peirol and the poetic brilliance of vidal create an image of times long forgotten and the pieces of lonardi are like waking from a blessedly sleep. Especially the italian works remind me of classical masterpieces like guiseppe verdi's il trovatore. If you like to get to know music of old, and get a clear overall picture of the troubadour and renaissance music, this is a cd to start with. Droardus Trecensis did a fine job on reconstructing old renaissance scriptures and medieval sheet music to bring you back to the times of old."

"This CD is a nice collection of music that you would expect to hear at a medieval king's ball. Nothing peasant on here, which was kind of disappointing, but it is true to it's title. Fine, kingly music."
