Thread Name: New CD by Rapunzel and Sedayne!
Subject: RE: New CD by Rapunzel and Sedayne!
I'd agree, TL - I'm just baffled about Paul's ideas on 'conservatism' on the one hand, and what is it about our music he thinks is so radical with respect of that - especially when the KFFC audience were so warm & responsive to our particular brand of folk 'n' fun.

Anyway, another new piece up at the Winterflora page today in merry anticipation of Advent. This is a sort of dance-raga-cum-carol, 100% improvised after certain rhythms & modalities of the 13th Century Cantigas de Santa Maria, here played on medieval fiddle (my new Vielle Vermell making its recording debut!) with frame drum, bells & vocalising from Rapunzel - so, pretty conservative on the whole I'd say...
