  • about this album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    The medieval concept of “courtly love” has remained over the centuries, evoking images of lavish royal courts and nobility jockeying for respect and status under the pretext of romance. Music and dance played a key role; here, the Ensemble Alcatraz performs 13th-century French and English love songs and dances to bring this ancient custom to life.
