Between Heaven and Earth
Jill presents here some of her favourite medieval and Renaissance songs from many lands around the ever-fascinating subject of love. Among the myriad facets of earthly affection, she also offers aspects of spiritual love, from both the Christian and the Jewish traditions. Here she mixes a cappella singing with varied accompaniments on her troubadour harp and other instruments. A stunning experience of another world.
