    EXILE MUSIC AND MIGRATION IN LATE MEDIEVAL EUROPE

    Music has long been the solace and talisman of wandering people: from the Crusaders (who traversed the Mediterranean until and even beyond the 14th century) to the pilgrims heading for Europe’s major sanctuaries, to the transit routes of desperate populations escaping war and famine. Mala Punica features some of the most touching
    songs and lyrics of farewell and nostalgia preserved in 14th- and 15th-century sources.

    “Fantastic, mysterious works, and Mala Punica performs them with nothing less than excellence at every turn. The musicians are superb, their ensemble skills outstanding.” Early Music America
