Charms, Riddles, and Elegies…” consists of music from the 8th-11th centuries played on various harps and wooden and bone flutes with songs in Old English, Old High German, Old Icelandic, and Latin drawn from some of the oldest known manuscript sources: the Old English Beowulf epic (possibly 8th century), the Old Icelandic Edda, the 10th-century Exeter Book, and numerous fragments from Germany and Switzerland. Each of these chants, songs and spoken riddles gives us a glimpse into a time so distant from ours and yet near in spirit: a world of singing poets, warriors, valkyries and seeresses, healers and philosophers.
