A wonderful blend of early music by various ensembles, including my very favorite, The Ensemble Unicorn. This album has a little of each western European country's music from the medieval period. Though three or four of the recordings aren't of the best quality recording (the musicians are top notch, it just sounds like an old recording) It was an excellent purchase. I initially purchased it because I was buying anything by the Ensemble Unicorn, and found several other ensembles on this cd I enjoyed just as much. All in all, a VERY good purchase for the early music enthusiast!
