Hrægl mīn swīgað Þonne ic hrūsan trede
oÞÞe Þā wīc būge oÞÞe wado drēfe.
Hwīlum mec āhebbað ofer hæleÞa byht
hyrste mīne and Þēos hēa lyft,
and mec Þonne wīde wolcna strengu
ofer folc byreð; frætwa mīne
swōgað hlūde and swinsiað,
torhte singað, Þonne ic getenge ne bēom
flōde and foldan, fērende gæst.

Marginalia Exeter, UK

A five piece folk band that takes beautiful medieval lyrics and resets them to their own compositions.

Marginalia have played festivals, re-enactments, LARP, folk clubs and parties. ... more
