5 stars Wonderful prog folk chamber ensemble, delivering once again a classic of rustic, pastoral ballads and light bluesy-kraut rocking pieces. This album is continuously beautiful, mentioning a respectful sense of composition concerning old medieval pagan music. All poetical lyrics are in German (sung by female/ male voices). The opening track is strictly acoustic, delivering a bucolic, enchanting ballad for viola, flute, percussions and dreamy like voices. "Der Rivale" creates an original fusion between traditional epic medieval chants and bluesy-psych guitars, an energical sense of harmony, a great reappropriation of "ancient music". "Der Rattenfanger" is a melodic, fragile, folkish "romantic" composition for guitars, cellos and voices. "Fur Irene" features nice classical guitar passages, introspective flute lines and a lyrical atmosphere (this one is instrumental). "merseburger" starts a traditional folk chant for a little ensemble of voices, then goes into a dancing rocking "trip". The last composition is a ritualistic, pagan chant with really intrusive vocals. Perfectly achieved and clearly the best prog folk band which includes obvious & authentic medieval influences.
