Directed by Katharine Blake

The Mediaeval Baebes are 12 stunning young women who share with us their love of 11th to 16th century folk and sacred music (and the instruments and costumes of that period) on "Undrentide," their 4th excellent CD. Particularly noteworthy are the full-color, extensive liner notes, which are as beautifully designed and graphically exciting as any we've seen. 19 songs, some of which are mediaeval words put to music by Musical Director Katharine Blake. Some of our favorites: the title tune, "Quon vey la louzeta," the 15th century English "Besse Bunting," "Summerisle" (The Maypole Song), "Secreit Nicht," the raucous "Omnes gentes plaudite" (The Drinking Song), the poignant "Lanquan Li Jorn," "Dance of the Trolls" (instrumental) and the solemn "Palastinalied." Most songs are lightly accompanied. Another Baebes winner!
