Information from owned CD & book. This is a splendid CD well worth the trouble to order it abroad by mail.
This program was made in connection with the titled "Calendimaggio di Assisi" which is a medieval recreation festival in the old town of Assisi, done since 1927. The "book" version of the recording contains quite an extensive discussion of the festival, and apparently it has become quite elaborate, and since 1952 has included "real" medieval music. The festival is a touchstone not just for historical awareness, but actually recreating the sense of festival itself and the social value of such an occasion. In the very old town, some of the activities had not ceased since the middle ages, giving the whole thing quite a sense of foundation. - Todd M. McComb
