Thibaut Devigne Very smooth and slightly dark atmospheric and classical music. It seems to have been composed during the Middle-Age but feels like it is interpreted in a modern way. Very good.

The gaye device A lovely atmospheric reflective album perfect for any time of day when you just want to sit and stop and listen and daydream.

Elías Ortega Fajardo Simple but elegant and beautiful compositions filled with medieval tones. Favorite track: Promitat eterno.

Lost Tribe Sound Simply incredible! Rarely does chamber music get me this aroused (that clarinet work), but Bastarda sulks along with hefty amounts of low-end, and a sinister swagger that is dedicated to mood and visceral sound. Comparable to the works of Trio Ramberget or Dictaphone stripped of their electronic component.

BASTARDA "Promitat eterno"

Paweł Szamburski (clarinet)
Tomasz Pokrzywiński (cello)
Michał Górczyński (contrabass clarinet)
Special guest on "Promitat eterno" - Marcin Masecki (piano)

Warsaw based musicians are playing new and original interpretation of medieval music by Petrus Wilhelmi de Grudencz (1392 - c. 1480).
His works found in German, Polish and Czech manuscripts scattered throughout Europe, was completely unknown until very recently. Most of his compositions appeared anonymously, as was common in the Middle Ages. In the 1970s, however, Jaromír Černý, who was studying 15th-century Czech manuscripts, was struck by both the words and music of certain part-songs and motets. All these texts were acrostics, with the initial letters of consecutive words invariably forming the composers name.
Petrus Wihelmi's works are of two genres, songs and motets, differing in the way the words are set and in contrapuntal technique. The songs, usually in two parts, occasionally in three, are often very concise, with a tendency to symmetry and repetition of rhythmic patterns.

As a group we are now participating in the HERA project "Sound Memories. The Musical Past in Late-Medieval and Early Modern Europe"!
We are committed to the HERA process of research and its musicological projects.
