Mediaeval Baebes: Illumination

Mediaeval Baebes’ latest release, Illumination, churns the all-female vocal ensemble’s signature Gothic choir sound with even more exotic instrumentation, faster tempos and fiercer wails. The song cycle is brimming with dark drama, intoxicating rhythms and haunting choral harmonies that transport you to the Middle Ages. Stand out tracks are “Desert Rose,” “The Blacksmiths,” “Yonder Lea” and the gorgeous “Til ‘A The Seas Gang Dry,” which incorporates Robert Burns’ poem “A Red Red Rose.”
