Monday Music: Les Tisserands (Zefiro Torna)

I happened upon this beautiful rendition of traditional French folk music recently:

The traditional music group Amorroma, the historical music ensemble Zefiro Torna and jazz saxophone player and flute player Philippe Laloy (Traces, Tricycle) meet in a programme imbued by the spirit of Catharism. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the Cathars formed an important spiritual movement. Averse to all dogmas, they aimed at elevated human values such as austerity, immaterialism and noblesse de coeur (nobility of the heart). -- From the YouTube notes

Saturday Haiku: Early Shoots

daffodils rise up
the waters crest in the creek
springtime is calling
