I realize I am just one of thousands of people creatively inspired by the Armitage muse, although I rarely need him when it comes to music. Would he like this one? Maybe. But I like it, and I hope you will, too.
This is a lovely piece that I heard for the first time today (thank you, KNPR) from a group called Hirundo Maris (Sea Swallow). Founded by Arianna Savall, from Spain, and Petter Udland Johansen, from Norway, they play an interesting blend of Nordic and Mediterranean influenced early music, ranging from the Middle Ages to the Baroque period. I liked it enough to hunt it down online, although I am disappointed that it isn’t on Spotify. iTunes, never one to miss an opportunity to take my money, came through.
This is a lovely piece of music from the debut album Chants du Sud et du Nord entitled “El Mariner” (The Sailor). Let me know if you if you like it as much as I do.
And Spotify? You’re missing out on this one.
