On Tuesday, November 13th the first Saturnalia Trio album will see its digital debut. You can download this fine album of Medieval tunes and original songs at iTunes, Amazon and many other online vendors. Includes a few extra tracks not included on the original cassette version.
"This delightfully versatile group’s only problem is arithmetical; it actually consists of four multi-instrumentalists, who play everything from psalteries to synthesizers and darbukkas to dulcimers. They dig deeply into the progressive folk genre, combining medieval and Renaissance music with modern sensibilities. Memorable originals sit comfortably next to songs by John Dowland, and the results form a thoroughly enjoyable pastiche that might remind one of Fairport Convention or the Incredible String Band. This recording will be a smash within a hundred miles of any Renaissance fair." November 2009 CD Hotlist / (JW)
