Medieval Music and Songs of the Troubadours by Musica Reservata

Bought on iTunes today: Medieval Music and Songs of the Troubadours by Musica Reservata. I had some of this on cassette tape years ago. Actually, that was my first introduction to secular medieval music. I'm glad I now have a digital version.

This recording by Musica Reservata is less polished than some of the other medieval music out there, but that roughness gives it a gusto sometimes lacking in the more polished recordings. While listening to this recording, I imagine I'm hearing a performance by a group of wandering medieval minstrels.
