Music of the Crusades: Songs of Love and War


Here's a fascinatin' conglomeration of music that's purty different from the mass-produced crap that comes along on most radios nowadays.

That's because it's from an older worldview which felt that individual expression was of little worth unless aimed at a higher calling; that self-denial was a virtue; and other odd beliefs.

Like most human points of view, these feelings also were both ignored when expedient, and taken to hideous extremes.  Still, this music is exotic and interesting.  The topics aren't OUR love, or OUR war, so we can perceive them from a nice remove.
