Culture Break: The Ivory Consort: A la Una

Lately I've been listening to a lot of early music -- pre-classical, a lot of it from medieval and early Renaissance Iberia. Ivory Consort's Music in the Land of Three Faiths is one of my stand-bys, although that album is mostly much more low-key than this piece.

From the description at YouTube:

A Sephardic melody, sung in Judezmo, played on period instruments. Founded in 1990, the Ivory Consort here performs music of three faiths, Christian, Muslim and Jewish, from medieval Spain and Portugal.
