I have been playing early music for a very long time, I had the great privilege of studying with Thomas Binkley. I am very sensitive and honestly very opinionated about medieval music and your music rings true to me! Thank you for devoting your precious time and life energy to bringing your music alive and sharing it.
"MURMUR MORI ensemble takes medieval music with joy and energy, it is a good way to sing of love which hasn't really changed in its most natural pillars from the Middle Ages until today."
"Che idea vi siete fatti delle donne nel Medioevo? Servizievoli vestali facili prede di scrupoli religiosi? I Memoriali di Bologna ci regalano una presa diretta sui divertimenti delle donne del popolo, consegnando all'eternità dei registri una ballata, 𝑃𝑢𝑟 𝑏𝑖𝑖 𝑑𝑒𝑙 𝑣𝑖𝑛, 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑎𝑑𝑟𝑒, che immortala le ribalderie di due comari: le due donne, di taverna in taverna, bevono vino e mangiano capponi, di tappa in tappa, orinano agli angoli delle strade e maledicono i marinai che sul porto scaricano partite di lino -scaricassero solo del vino!-: loro due non hanno alcuna voglia di tornare a tessere, ordire e filare. Oggi la ballata, riposta nel Memoriale 47 del notaio Anthonius Guidonis de Argele, rivive grazie alla maestria dell'ensemble Murmur Mori ed alla voce perlacea di Silvia Kuro."
"I listened to Sorte travelling on the Cathar castles' route of the Corbières. Beautiful ballads and poems concealing a great energy behind their tranquility and tenderness. Norma contro Natura it's the song I preferred the most. This record is like a joyous breath of fresh wind."
"... Sorte, eleven pieces performed almost on the sly with an ostentatious good taste, alien to the disordered cries and above all from the obsessively repetitive rhythms of certain contemporary music."
"I find Murmur Mori's music stimulating and original. I was lucky enough to be a London teenager when Punk exploded in England and I can say that listening to your interpretation of medieval music I thought about the Sex Pistols."
“Folk melodies with a medieval style, from young minstrels looking for a new master to ask to be able to sing their joys, amusements and sorrows in peace. Songs sought after on an instrumental level, excellent as usual texts and vocal parts, in short: fortified with love, it is always an immense joy to listen to their gentle harmonies. "
"...folk that looks at 360 ° to the Italian tradition but incorporates European influences of today and yesterday - the impeccable arrangements, the lyric beautifully married to the melodies. Death of the Unicorn adds (but probably not yet completes) an ambitious songbook that speaks to us of an eternally present time, making it in its complexity, far from simplifications and easy solutions and it does so, under the gentle and refined patina of the compositions, through songs of struggle which, resounding in the chest, nourish the body no less than the mind.
