Sunday is for Listening

I don’t know about you, but my childhood Sundays were a day for pancake breakfasts and radio shows. On grim grey days especially, music was a way to escape the weather and to turn a day in the house into an adventure.

In honour of these weekend traditions, I have decided to launch an occasional series on mediaeval music, appearing on Sundays, in the hopes of introducing some great CDs to the world. New entries will be linked below, but will also appear under the ‘Books, Movies, and More’ category.

Happy listening!

Posts in the Series:

February 26th, 2012: The Sound of the Sagas.

March 11th, 2012: The Courtly Muse. 

March 25th, 2012: Standing In Praise.

    • That sounds like a great trip! Unfortunately, May 15th-25th is right in the middle of my final exams here in St Andrews, and the following weeks will be a bit hectic, since I’m graduating, but London could be feasible.

      I was lucky enough to catch a live performance of Cappella Romana in Seattle, at one of the Greek Orthodox churches in the city, and it was absolutely magical! I’m hoping to finally do another music post this week, maybe with a few Byzantine pieces!
