Thread Name: Mediaeval Baebes?
Subject: RE: Mediaeval Baebes?
4 CDs and listening since 2001 or 2002. I have seen them twice in concert at a Joust event at Berkley Castle. The first time was amazing. My virgin experience. The second year, some of the sparkle of newness had rubbed off.
The music is a mix. While my daughter preferred the melodic french pieces I liked the latin and middle English. Some good drumming. Some of there "Peri-oid" stuff is pretty OK. Their harmonies are awesome!!!
I would suggest think of them like Disney. Go once, if you love it go again and again. If not then at least you can say "been there done that."
BTW I saw a few of the Youtube videos - they are not a good representation of the actual experience.
