Culture Break: Qntal: Name der Rose

Qntal is another of those medieval pop groups that were taking the Berlin club scene by storm a few years ago. It's a group on the order of Eurhythmics or Dead Can Dance -- a knock-out singer and a guy -- or in this case, two guys -- who do everything else. This is one of my favorite cuts of theirs, from their 2004 album Qntal III: Tristan und Isolde. It starts off a little slow, but be patient. It's worth it.

This is terrific. I'd never heard of them before so I'm grateful you pointed the way.

This is the sort of thing that happens when you're the Weird Music Guy at a review site who has a tendency to say, "Sure, I can do that."

I've found some wonderful music that way.
