Nice, updated take on the material
S. Gustafson | New Albany, IN USA | 02/19/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This one is definitely not for mediæval purists. They have played with the simple lines of the source material, using all sorts of studio effects, although the basic music is presented using vocals and acoustic instruments. This experimental approach works quite well.
And what they do with it comes off quite well. Big, boomy reverb, vocal drones, and some excellent drumming add stature to these songs.
You get not only relatively well known mediæval pieces like -Chanterai por mon corage- and -Palastinalied-, two of the better tracks on the record, but also interesting music I was not as familiar with. -Imperator rex græcorum- is another standout track, given a nicely dramatic reading here."
Captivating and magical

"This album is one that brings me to distant, long ago yet ageless lands, among a people who live in magic and the mystery of life. The male singer has a rich, deep beautiful voice and the female singer's voice is beautiful also and perfectly matched with the music. The music itself a superb mixture of medeival music (including some chant) with a modern touch. The drum piece is incredible. The album is sung in french, but for me, not being able to understand the words just enables me to focus all the more on the music. Historically intriguing, also!"
