Mediaeval Baebes

Mediaeval Baebes began when a group of friends broke into a North London cemetery and sang together, clad in flowing white gowns and crowns of ivy. Setting Medieval text to original scores and playing classical instruments is only the beginning.  Their outstanding vocal harmonies help to portray the fairytale whimsy and supernatural allure in a theatrical spectacular.  Although the performance is storybook-like, three of their albums have hit the top of the classical charts, validating their dedication. Escape to the enchanted world of the Mediaeval Baebes and enjoy the contemporary sound of Mediaeval Times.
