Discography: (US) Cançonièr and the Black Dragon -- Harmonia Early Music

Contributed by Admin on Feb 07, 2011 - 02:18 AM

…  The American medieval ensemble Cançonièr has taken inspiration from Benheim’s poem as well as the music from Dracula’s time. Their recording “The Black Dragon” includes traditional and art music of the period in addition to excerpts from the blood-curdling poem.

Several pieces chosen for the program come down to us by way of oral tradition, including Balkan songs from Hungary, Transylvania, Moldavia, and Bulgaria—regions connected with Vlad Dracula.

Visit the Harmonia Early Music [2] site to hear the full hour-long  episode. Note that the file is in Real audio. If you do not have a player for this type of file, you may want to consider using the VLC [3] media player.
