This new release is the second volume in Delphian Records’ monumental collaboration with the European Music Archaeology Project. The series explores the earliest known music from Scandanavia. Together with partners from ten European countries, the European Music Archaeology Project has researched and brought to life ancient music from 40,000 BC to present day. The group will hold a series of international exhibitions, which will allow the public to more fully understand the crucial role that music played in ancient societies. This album includes songs improvised on Viking instruments, as well as notated songs from the earliest centuries of Christianity in Scandinavia.

The medieval period gave us some of the greatest, most enduring stories in history. Some are of them were real – some are altered into pure Legend. These legends usually had somebody doing villainous deeds. The even greater thing is that most of these were surrounded in mystery or conspiracy. Medieval Murder Mysteries uses modern thinking from historical police criminology combined with forensics and human osteologists blended with current historical ideas to try and solve what really happened all those years ago. Magnificent castles, chivalrous knights, powerful kings and queens? You’ll have them. Also require dark deeds, illicit lovers, greedy nobles, mad cardinals? Look no further.

“Sacred Visions” presents two Zorn masterpieces touching upon the mediaeval world. “The Holy Visions” is a Mystery Play in eleven strophes concerning the life, work and philosophy of 12th century composer, healer and visionary mystic Hildegard von Bingen, and is one of Zorn’s most beloved and acclaimed works for voice. Here it is coupled with Zorn’s latest string quartet “The Remedy of Fortune,” six tableaux depicting the changing fortunes of romantic love, which was inspired by the work of 12th century troubadour Guillaume de Machaut and receives a precise and passionate reading by the brilliant JACK quartet. Two wondrous modern compositions drawing on mediaeval spirituality, both sacred and secular!
