Think you know Mediaeval Baebes? Well think again: if you look beyond the schtick there's some greatly enjoyable music to be found on this jam packed double album.

I've never paid much attention to the Mediaeval Baebes before, but then new album The Huntress landed on my doormat and I listened, and was won over: look past the frou frou faux mediaeval stylings and this is great fun. Across two packed CD's worth of tracks, both old tunes and ancient texts set to self-penned music get the Baebes treatment - intriguing stories, atonal melodies, folk noodlings and plenty of glorious harmonies. For anyone interested in the intersection of classical music and mediaeval folk this will make an intriguing purchase. Founding Baebe Katharine Blake answers some questions about the creation of and inspiration behind The Huntress.
