Saturnalia Trio: Of Mosaic And Muse

4th release by these troubadours from a by-gone era. Of Mosaic And Muse continues the band's exploration of midieval music, blended in with some slightly more modern sounding pieces.Frontman Daniel Crommie has penned half the tracks on this disc. Some are instrumentals where his beautiful buche (midieval dulcimer) leads the charge, while on the vocal tracks, his Ian Anderson-like tenor voice is a perfect compliment to the music.

Fans of authentic medieval music will lose themselves in this disc. This is not merely a modern twist on a old musical style; this band truly recreates the delicate beauty of the music from the age of Camelot. Haunting melodies where dulcimer, oboe, flute, and viola coalesce into delicate gems.This is a superb Sunday morning disc, to be listened to while savoring a cup of hot java and letting time stand still for a moment.
