4p digipack, 16p booklet

Ethnic project POTIR was created by an artist and multi-instrumentalist Andrey Nazarov in 2009. Initially it was considered to be studio-project only to reconstruct a musical panorama of the Middle Ages. Today the project is the artwork by two persons, Andrey Nazarov and Evgeny Lyalin. This artwork consists of making musical pictures, studio work; there are only two men and loads of instruments.

The album «Gothic City» is the project’s first work. There is almost an hour of musical material, one-hour journey to a medieval city, an hour of wandering from tradition to tradition. Witches’ night dance, folk dances tough dynamics, flavored with the noise of fairs and taverns, Gregorian chants and unforgettable «Llibre Vermell de Montserrat» lyrics come one by one.

«Age-old music is not just forgotten manuscripts, but definite state, in which the epoch is reflected, its breathing, its dynamics where the pictures of the past and ancient world-view are hidden».

«The design is ours as well. Everything is important here: age-old miniatures, historical texts, museum and antique things, customs and rituals, all these are the style of the past».

Some real authentic instruments were used in the recording of the album; one of them is more than 300 years old.

The concept is ended by «Epilogo» - the scene of the Flagellants’ march and the Judgment Day’s picture. The album’s booklet is opening by the verses from Dante’s «the Divine Comedy». Have a nice listening!

The sweet sounds of Medieval England

Ensemble Belladonna

This collection of songs (performed in part instrumentally) is a tribute to the melodious melancholy of the English.

Ensemble Belladonna consists of three women -- Miriam Andersén, Rebecca Bain, and Susanne Ansorg -- who hail from Sweden, Canada, and Germany, respectively. The group specializes in singing music of the medieval and early Renaissance periods, and if one were to compare it to Anonymous 4, Ensemble Belladonna might well find such suggestion flattering as its members are avid admirers of the "the girls." Nevertheless, Ensemble Belladonna is significantly different from Anonymous 4 in that the group plays its own instruments: Andersén the medieval harp, Bain the fiddle, and Ansorg the vielle and rebec. The members of Ensemble Belladonna met while studying at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel, Switzerland, and while they have been together since 1997, Raum Klang's Melodious Melancholye appears to be their first release on disc.

"Melodious" is an apt choice of adjective for these musicians, as their voices are very strong, pleasant, and beautiful. Their enunciation of Middle English -- ergo, this collection is subtitled "The Sweet Sounds of Medieval England" -- is pure and convincing in a manner that surpasses many native speakers of modern English. The instrumental performances are likewise cogent and skillful, and Ensemble Belladonna's offhand and casual style of playing seems idiomatic in a way that seems to the manner born, nothing in the performances smack of conspicuous realization. The program consists of a wide variety of English songs dating from the beginning of the thirteenth century to the early decades of the fifteenth; there are many highlights, though "Abide, I hope it be the best" and their rendition of the Christmas carol "Lullay lullow" are standouts. The annotation of Melodious Melancholye is sensible and contains details on sources for each piece within the track listing. Raum Klang's recording is a little quiet, but one only turn it up if need be; in every other way this maiden voyage for Ensemble Belladonna is a superb effort, and should win the group both wide admiration and many fans.

Collection: Medieval Period

Media vita in morte sumus - im Leben des mittelalterlichen Menschen war der Tod allgegenwärtig. Ausgehend von den christlichen Hoffnungen auf ein Leben im Jenseits, entwickelten sich umfassende Bilder vom Tod: Fegefeuer, Jüngstes Gericht, Seelenheil im Himmel, Liebes-und Märtyrertod. Im Spätmittelalter entstand daraus in Dichtung und Musik eine Kultur des "schönen Todes". Die IOCULATORES haben die unterschiedlichen Sichtweisen auf den Tod im Mittelalter in diesem Programm kaleidoskopartig zusammengestellt. Während der CD-Einspielung in der romanischen Klosterkirche zu Thalbürgel arbeitete das Ensemble mit variablen Spielorten. Durch diese veränderlichen Klangräume, die natürliche Klangkulisse und die gesprochenen Texte gewinnt die Aufnahme zusätzlich den Reiz eines Hörspiels.

Im Europa des 12. Jahrhunderts erlebte die Marienverehrung mit ihrer spezifischen Spiritualität eine Hochblüte. Künstlerinnen und Künstler ließen sich in Dichtung, bildender Kunst und Musik zu immer reicheren und kunstvolleren Schöpfungen zum Lobpreis der Gottesmutter inspirieren. „Mel et lac“ bringt eine Auswahl ein- und mehrstimmiger Mariengesänge aus dieser aufregenden Zeit kompositorischer Experimente und Neuerungen. Dies ist das CD-Debüt des noch jungen, aus Frauenstimmen bestehenden Ensembles Peregrina, das sich der klangsinnlichen Entdeckung verschiedenster musikalischer Repertoires aus dem Europa des 12. bis 14. Jahrhunderts widmet.

This deluxe presentation celebrates the eighth centenary of its subject. Here called “St. Elizabeth of Thuringia,” but better known as St. Elizabeth of Hungary (1207-1231), this daughter of the king and queen of Hungary was betrothed to the future margrave of Thuringia in infancy and brought up at that court. She was 14 when the marriage was celebrated, and they had three children before he went off to the Crusades, dying along the way at Otranto in 1227. Elizabeth, already moved by the ideals of the newly founded Franciscan order, devoted herself as Landgravine to the needs of the poor. As a widow, she left the inhospitable court to live in Marburg, where she established a hospital and labored for the sick until her death at the age of 24. Celebrated for her works on behalf of the poor and sick, she was canonized four years later. Devotion spread from Thuringia as far as Cambrai and her native Hungary. Schola Hungarica recorded two chant Offices for her feast (19:4), one from Cambrai, where her heart had been enshrined, and the other from Warburg, a source also copied in Hungary.

Unlike that collection of Office chants, this program is a wide-ranging group of vocal and instrumental pieces from the period, all related closely to the life of the saint. Three separate ensembles take their turns, in addition to Jörg Peukert, who reads from an early biography of the saint with aural punctuation by a harpist. Besides an antiphon, a responsory, a sequence, and a hymn from the Office, we hear vernacular songs by the monk of Salzburg and Walther von der Vogelweide, an Italian lauda, and instrumental pieces by Ioculatores. On two tracks Ioculatores ensemble joins with one or the other group. The tracks spoken in German run over 20 minutes without printed text. The booklet offers a detailed guide to the program, with notes and summaries of each track in addition to the full texts with translations, and it is lavishly illustrated. Everything has been achieved on the highest level to make this a worthy tribute on the saint’s anniversary. As a gift package, it would be a compliment to the taste of the recipient.
