Hark! The Herald Mediaevel Babes



They’ve been around since 1996 and released a fair few albums; yet in some circles mentioning Mediaeval Baebes will raise chuckles and smirks, which in some respects is understandable but not really very fair.

The Baebes are all about a celebration of vocal harmonies, language and Mediaeval history. Their music is rather spell-binding, even more so when you discover that most of the subject-matter within their canon is about love, death, murder, being drunk and more death.

In November (2012), the group released a new album entitled 'The Huntress', harking a return to the basics of voice and traditional accompaniment - hurdy-gurdy, recorders, you name it - as well as plans to showcase the album in some of the UK's most impressive buildings.

Hence, The Mediaevel Babes Christmas Cathedral Tour started in Rochester Cathedral on November 16, 2012 followed by December shows in cathedrals in Norwich, Gloucester, Ely, Peterborough and finally Holborn in London on December 21, 2012.

The new album is Available HERE
