Defenitely good to hear a feminine voice.
Raw music that makes you want to dance in the wood!
The quality of the sound is great. It is rare to hear either feminine voice and percussion in christian music.
But one thing puzzles me -- even after buying and listening to this CD, Ms. Moran seems to STILL have no idea what it's all about. Didn't she bother to read the CD booklet? Her review indicates that she is even still under the assumption that there is only ONE artist here (The "Black Madonna") and not a group or ensemble. I would suggest that she put her pre-conceptions aside, read the liner notes and try this disc again, it just might grow on her.
The material is pilgrim songs and trouvere material from a manuscript in Catalonia. The performers adapt this music freely, adding instrumental parts; and attack these simple songs in stanza forms with freedom and glee.
Belinda Sykes' voice, in particular, carries this record off. What comes off this disc, mostly, is -enthusiasm-; I haven't heard an early music record that was this much fun to listen to since the Binkley -Carmina Burana-.

They're calling her a Madonna and surely she is. But she doesn't swing, she's got no rhythm and her sex appeal comes from a different continent on a different planet. Read morePublished on Nov. 1 2001 by Nancy Moran
