Harmonia Mundi
During the high Middle Ages, Christian Europa was swept up in a wave of passionate adoration of the Virgin Mary. Nowhere was the cult stronger than in the British Isles, where Ladymasses and other special votive services were said and sung daily in churches large and small.
Here is a selection of plainchant, songs, motetets, and carols for Christmas from England sources of the 13th through 15th centuries.
