Mediaeval Baebes

The best-selling vocal ensemble Mediæval Bæbes began in 1996 when ex-Miranda Sex Garden chanteuse Katharine Blake aimed to set her fascination with the Middle Ages to music and theater. She and 11 additional musicians and singers -- Miranda Sex Garden's Teresa Casella, Audrey Evans, comic writer Marie Findley, Nicole Frobusch, Ruth Galloway, Karen Lupton, Claire Ravel, Australian native Cylindra Sapphire, Carmen Schneider, Nichole Sleet, and New Zealander Rachel Van Asch -- defined a contemporary musical approach while incorporating Middle Ages Paganism and spiritual moods and sentiments. Their 1997 debut, Salva Nos, was the fastest-selling debut from Virgin's classical distributor Venture, and became one of the most popular classical recordings of the year.

Two years later, Worldes Blysse was released and that, too, became a success on the British charts. Third album Undrentide, which called upon production from the Velvet Underground's John Cale, was issued in fall 2000. Frobusch, Lupton, and Sleet had left the Bæbes family, and Blake's vision had scaled down to nine women. The newly downsized group kept on, scoring the music for the 2000 black comedy American Psycho. A fourth album, The Rose, followed in spring 2002, named in honor of the Medieval symbol of love. Aside from singing in Italian, Latin, German, Middle English, and Medieval French, the Bæbes added Medieval Welsh and Russian to their musical palette. In fall 2003, the John Cale-produced -- and the group's first-ever holiday album -- Mistletoe and Wine was released, their fifth for Nettwerk. By the occasion of 2005's Mirabilis, the Bæbes' lineup included Blake, Casella, Evans, Van Asch, Sapphire, Findley, and newcomers Maple Bee and Emily Ovenden. The album continued their mystical blend of ancient linguistics, folkloric tradition, and lush soundscapes. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Any body know how to stop hearing songs from a certain band besides all ways thumbing it down its not that I don't like the music but it kinda uses Ann inappropriat e word in the description and there are kids who go on this kindle because we sleep to Celtic women radio and they go on it sometimes just to see who's singing =3

Beautiful. .. and fun. .. very nice!
I know for myself and other people I have turned on to these wonderful songstress' of medieval times, I hope they put out another album soon (as well as tour the USA and Michigan specifically ! ) Would love to see them perform in concert.
Well then...

Id marry any one of them or convert to mormonism and marry them all. What a great trip into fantasy and the ancient places of memory

Hauntingly beautiful!
These ladies can make you forget your troubles

Maybe they are standing so close so they can all fit into the picture.
No, Dude with the Face. They're posed to sell. And if they are a group of lesbians, so what?
truly beautiful voices, just love this

Living in california we get so many different styles of local music and the culture is very ethnocentric to the thug styles from America. It is always refreshing to hear choral based music! Im glad pandora has this or I may not have ever known this group existed.

These women are so incredibly talented, seductive, and comical! Awesome in person, mesmerizingl y beautiful to watch and each with different exotic styles of their own.
Strange profile pic. Eight girls holding onto each other and standing REALLY close to each other. Lesbians?

Mediaeval, maybe. Baebes? Uh... no. Not to mention they sound like our youth choir.
Agreed. I got the Illumination s album @ the MD Renaissance Festival a couple of years ago; it's an incredible album and they sound amazing on that album!
You need to include their "Illuminatio n s " album--it captures their live energy quite well. They are a gem, often overlooked, to the loss of many.

I heard about them a long time ago--when they popped up on the similar artists list, I had to create a station. Glad I did!
