"The Best of the Mediaeval Baebes" is their 7th CD in our catalog, all notable for their surreal photos of 8 to 13 beautiful, stunningly-attired women who sing like angels. The Baebes love 13th century a cappella (or very lightly accompanied) music, and Medieval poetry set to original compositions by group member Katherine Blake and others. This combination of classical music, sexy-looking women and costumes has made the Baebes big sellers in the a cappella and classical genres, because they sing, arrange and compose remarkably. We've listened to these songs before on previous CDs, but they haven't lost any of their power to enthrall and touch us. "Gaudette," "Ah Si Mon Moine," "Salva Nos" (lightly accompanied title tune of their debut album), "La Volta," "Love Me Broughte," "Kinderley," "Swete Sone," "Pearl," "Earthe Upon Erthe" and "How Death Comes" are particularly fine, but there's not a weak track here. Powerful, memorable and lovely.
