Medieval Party Mix

A very nice selection of medieval dance music.

Of course, the thing with medieval groups is that they have the notes for a lot of songs, and they have the words for some; but there are very few markings for things like tempo or instrumentation. So they have to do things like look at paintings and carvings of musical groups, and read verbal descriptions. Finally, they embark upon the advanced musical process called “make a guess and see what works.”

So medieval music groups are not sure they are authentic; but they are making informed and reasonable tries at it.
