An overlooked treasure for early music lovers

(4 out of 5 stars)
"After hearing and taping a few cuts from this overlooked and little-known album about 5 years ago on NPR, I found this music to be as if someone had gone back in time to the Middle Ages and recorded it. Then recently, I found it on Amazon through sheer serendipity. I can't say that it's "authentic" sounding since no one really knows what medieval music sounded like. But, it sure sounds sweet and gentle. From courtly dances to dreamy psaltery pieces, this CD takes you all the way back to the Crusades, even.
A worthy successor to the harp/psaltery records of the late, great Elena Polonska, this is a CD no Early Music lover should be without.
So, why 4 stars? The album insert had no background info on the pieces. But, that's OK. If you're into medieval music, buy this one."
