In addition to medieval music the atmosphere of these historic sites is perfectly complemented by early music, haunting English, Scottish and Irish ballads as performed by two Czech bands Ginevra and Asonance. This week’s Sunday Music show will bring you the best of the latter group which this year celebrates 40 years on stage.
