    Mundus A Mundicia - music from a banned 14th century poem

    Roman de Fauvel was first published in Paris in 1314. It is an allegorical criticism of church and state, using the metaphor of a donkey becoming the ruler of his master's house. The poem was banned at the time for being seditious and heretical.

    This is "
    Roman de Fauvel - Mundus A Mundicia", arranged and performed by COLLAGE Berlin 2006

    That's heretical? Sounds beautiful.
