I am so ready for more simple, pastoral music but still want my prog. Any more suggestions for medieval/renaissance/baroque-influenced prog. I've got The Geese and The Ghost, Fruupp, Fauns, Eden, Ragnarök, Pererin, Dunwich, Iona, Seven Reizh (to name a few) but want more! I know they're out there! I just need help finding them.

P.S. If there are any other older threads of a similar nature, please clue me in.

Mr Freak, you can't go wrong with Gryphon! At least two albums I know of - `Red Queen to Gryphon Four' and `Midnight Mushrumps' are in that style:





Hope they are to your liking! I've been giving their albums a stack of listens lately.

Ya, for medieval prog, Gryphon's where it's at Wink
I'm using the chicken to measure it.

though I'm not a huge fan, Oaksenham does a decent blend of semi-medieval prog with hard rock

Glass Hammer - The Inconsolable Secret might fit the bill. Its a double disc (3 discs on the recent reissue) and its the second disc that may be of interest. Nothing else GH have done is like that though.

I'd say Blackmore's Night would probably fit the bill for medieval-influenced prog.

I trust you know Malicorne Drew? Definitely not my bag though, sounds like Marie Antoinette's bachelorette party...

I only have their second album btw, but it sure fits the bill of medieval music right down to the t.

Oh, I like my Malicorne, Dave...They always felt like a cult to me! That droning quality when the voices come together, the `lost in times past' music style. This picture of them always reinforced that thought in me!



All they need is some matching medallions like Magma and we're set!

Tried them. They're okay. A little too white-washed for me (i.e. simple).

I've owned Red Queen for some time. It's good. Midnight Mushrumps is at the top of my "Acquisitions Incomplete" list, so, thanks for the reminder!

Not yet! I'm actualy listening to them for the first time right now as I type this--from their own MySpace page. So far I'm liking it. (I actually like the lack of drums in music. A nice change...) nice that I know some French, too.
