Silk and Spice by Cantigas
Silk and Spice Move MD 3137 (1993)
Early instrumental music inspired by the Silk Road. Cantigas takes us on a musical journey through Medieval Europe, Asia and the Middle East, where the meeting of diverse cultures resulted in an interaction and exchange of musical ideas. Features dances from the middle Ages, monophonic Hebrew melodies and Spanish monophonic songs played on recorder, medieval stringed instruments and percussion.
There is sheer joy to the music making... the playing is first rate.
