  ORB -- Medieval Music Glossary
The cauda is musically free, though in some cases the composer rounded the form by repeating musical material at the end of the cauda.
The cauda ends with a conclusive clos cadence, and may involve musical rounding (repeating the music of the clos phrase of the pes as its final phrase, for example).
Each of the two musical sections had a refrain text which came back at the end of the poem, but the two halves of the refrain had to be separable, for in the middle of the poem three statements of the opening music appeared together.

A breve is also a note in music.
A breve is also a note in music, lasting twice as long as a semibreve (or whole note).
Because it lasts longer than a bar in most modern time signatures, it is now rarely encountered, but in Mediaeval music it was the shortest note length, and could be either a half or a third as long as the longa.

 Metroactive Music | Trio Mediaeval
One of the most arresting new recordings of sacred music is Nebbiu: Canti Sacri Corsica (Harmonia Mundi), the debut of medieval chants and polyphony from Tempus Fugit, a male quintet who concentrate on ancient religious songs from the Nebbiu region of Corsica.
While the singing of Trio Mediaeval and Anonymous 4 has a light, ethereal quality, the bass-heavy Tempus Fugit deliver swooping glissandi that call down the Holy Spirit while grabbing your fifth chakra and delivering a Latin lesson you won't soon forget.
One of the most powerful songs here is "Messe Vultum Tuum," a reconstructed Roman mass from the seventh century that is based on the belief that the singers, through their breath and sound, can attain a level of purity that will result in the manifestation of the Virgin Mary's face.

 Mediaeval Babes Undrentide CD reviewed on AudioRevolution.com
Although it contains mediaeval lyrics (and sometimes mediaeval music), Undrentide is probably not an album that would normally be played on a classical station.
Back in London, Blake persuaded her friends to assemble and sing her arrangements of mediaeval songs, leading to a churchyard neo-Goth debut and two albums that topped the UK classical charts: Salva Nos in 1997 and Worldes Blysse in 1998.
I enjoy both "purist" renderings of early music, and also those, as we find here, that take on board contemporary influences – after all, one of my formative sound engineering experiences was working with "mediaeval rock band" Gryphon in the Seventies.

Next year the Baebes will celebrate their 10th year together and this album shows how they have gone from strength to strength.Although, now only 8 members, they are all talented musicians within their own right and this shows with the arrangements both vocally and instrumentally.
The songs, the singing and the music are all beautiful and perfectly executed, with strong dynamics, and light and shade.
None of the Baebes' established musical references are abandoned, but this album is also injected with fresh influences from folk and psychedelia.

The varied wind and percussion ensembles allow for the segregation of both "indoor" and "outdoor" whether for background music for banquets and formal dinners or for fanfares and flourishes and dancing.
With historically researched music, of the early medieaval and later English periods, the band recreates the sounds brought back by the early crusaders following their contact with the Arabs, known at that time as the Saracens.
However, in the 14th century, with its greater emphasisis on concerted music, the distinction became binding, and this is the first point to grasp when fitting old wind instruments, or modern substitute for them, into performances of 14th and 15th century music.

Their 13th-century characters, brought back from the past to talk about Middle Ages here and now, in the first person singular, and their unique instruments with their age-old non-tempered scales and their long-forgotten timbres, transport the listener to a place beyond time.
Relying on the most recent musicological research, based on sources as mediaeval manuscripts and iconography, An Dud Nevez is notable for its seriousness, truly living the Middle Ages not only as a profession but also as a passion.

 Aust Festival of Mediaeval Music
In the barrow are three large, carved mushrooms -- or maybe toadstools -- and it is carrying one of these that I make my entrance into the group of musicians, instrument makers, punters and at least one story-teller, gathered in the grass area next to the graveyard.
A little, but this is the Aust Festival of Mediaeval Music, the fourth of its kind, and the air is oddly enchanted here.
Unlike me, several of the gathering are here for the whole weekend, and that means the chance not only to hear but also to take part in workshops: dance; chant; pilgrim song; percussion, all of which contribute to a thoroughly anachronistic Sunday morning service on the final day.
