If the world is brimming over with anything, then it is love songs lasting three to five minutes. Nevertheless, Currentes is adding a new collection to this evergrowing number. Why? Well, we believe we can offer something new. Virtually all of these beautiful songs, written when the rhyme moon/June was first conceived, are essentially unknown to today’s listeners.

Those who may already know some of the songs will nonetheless enjoy these creative new Currentes arrangements and instrumentations. And for those who thought that the piano was an eighteenth-century invention, we offer a curiosity: there was a late medieval clavichord with metal tangents, and the ensemble’s keyboardist, David Catalunya, has had such a piano reinvented, based on drawings and descriptions from the 1400s. This is the first album to use such an instrument.

In addition to the lovely songs from the past, we are especially proud of the totally new songs that Eivind Buene has written for Currentes. His imaginative miniatures for the medieval ensemble are recorded here for the first time.
