from Makoto's Listening Room:

This 2CD set is the most favorite album in all music in the world for me. Of course i have a vinyl box set too. I bought this cd at Fnac in Paris in Autmun 1999. then i could find so many troubadours cds at this shop, i was very surprised...because I'd never see such large troubadours' CD space in anywhere.

But one of my friend told me this CD and all this series were out of print now...
oh man... why??? I think any record company have to keep the catalog of "good music", even if the sales was not so good!

If i have to choose only one record in all my life, I'm sure to choose this one. I've never listened such beautiful and heavenly music... and I can feel very "acid folk" atmosphere too...

strange and beautiful. Don't listen to this while driving, thoughJ! Puts you in an altered state.

This collection is one of several which I should recommend highly for making acquaintance with medieval French music. Thanks very much!

Very interesting stuff here - am struck by the similarity to some Moorish and Arabic music.
What a time to have been alive!
