Dead Can Dance sang a few medieval songs, but possibly with modern arrangements. Might be worth a look.

EnrixosfromParis    ср, 04/04/2018 - 19:12

I had a look, and found one song related to medieval : saltarello, but no lyrics, other songs have medieval name, but with modern instrumental from other part of the world. i would say this is merely modern chilling music with no specific tie to medieval era, from what i heard, but would gladly have the objective point of view of a "connoisseur"

petit élève    ср, 04/04/2018 - 19:32

The "Aion" album draws inspiration from medieval European music. "Saltarello" is from the 14th century and "The song of the sibyl" from the 16th. These are not verbatim renditions though.

You are welcome. Yes, she wrote a book, but the texts by her which we have here are poetry.
