The Music of Dawn
A short description of the musical style we're encouraging.
Arthurian high medieval, chivalric, courtly, 'high' culture, battle anthems, tales of love, glory, and tragedy. Dawn draws on the more formal folk and classical traditions of Shakespearean/Elizabethan period, for example madrigials, as well as fantastical folk tales.
