Medieval Music

Video Find of the Day

I don't know how it happened; I just realized that for the past year I have let Medieval music be off my radar. I've searched for renaissance music but it never occurred to me to search for Medieval. Well, that's simply wrong. I mean, besides having a life-long dream of banging pots in a Chinese funeral procession, I have dreamed of making raucous Medieval noise. So here's some. First, a Spanish ditty.

Remdih - medieval song by Alfonso X

In the next, the performance is in Sighisoara, a walled Transylvanian town which was once the home of Vlad Dracul, but the style of dancing looks Italian.
