    Fun, folksy, wonderfully arranged music!

    Ensemble Unicorn and Ensemble Oni Wytars join together to bring the music of medieval French troubadours to life. The spirited vocals of singer Marie LaFitte are accompanied by equally enthusiastic instrumentations, featuring all the early music standbys, as well as such exotic additions as laud, gaita, bujo, nay, saz, davul, zarb, bendir, deff, bowl drum and reed-flute (!). The result is a true celebration of French troubadour music, made as intriguingly varied and accessible to modern listeners as it must have been to contemporary audiences. If you like this recording, you¿ll also like the other joint release by Ensemble Unicorn and Oni Wytars, ¿On the Way to Bethlehem: Music of the Medieval Pilgrim¿. In addition, selections from other recordings featuring these musicians may be sampled on the following Naxos compilation albums: ¿An Introduction to Early Music¿, ¿The Glory of Early Music¿ and also ¿The World of Early Music¿, a 2 CD set taking the listener through time via various Naxos releases, and featuring a helpful catalog of Naxos recordings at the end of the insert. Check them out--the other Naxos artists featured thereon are excellent too!
