About this release

A combination of 3 colourful productions of Medieval music. All performed by the Italian ensemble Modo Antiquo, led by Bettina Hoffmann, specialized in early music. These musicians also played the world premiere of Vivaldi’s opera Montezuma. They play on instruments with fantastic names like olifante, citola, tromba marina and hurdy-gurdy. “Ordinary” instruments are also present, like the recorder, lute, harp and harpsichord.

This release contains the "real" Carmina Burana, of which Carl Orff based his namesake work. Then there is a part with French and English Medieval instrumental dances, mainly from manuscripts that are kept in the British Library and the Bibliothèque National. To complete the set, music for the Crusades is included. Much of it written by anonymous composers, some by people with fancy names like Thibaut de Champagne and Le Chastelain de Couci.

A set of early music offering the listener an authentic sound of a broad selection of instruments in a wide variety of repertoire.
