Percival's Lament: Medieval Music and the Holy Grail



In the middle ages writers saw the Holy Grail as a dish, chalice or precious stone. Songs and instrumental music celebrated its mystical power and were composed by some of the greatest troubadours, mystics and singer-poets of the age: Chrétien de Troyes, Walther von der Vogelweide, Wolfram von Eschenbach, and Hildegard of Bingen. This disc uniquely focuses on the common threads between Grail literature and music.  Total Time: 54 minutes
