Ruud van den Berg and I have now recorded this anonymous medieval song arranged for two guitars by Allan Alexander and Jessica Walsh. Ruud plays the Guitar 2 line, while I play the melodic Guitar 1 part.



This piece is a 13th century English song in praise of Virgin Mary. The title means "Blessed be Thou, Queen of Heaven". Ruud and I played it more like a dance. Here is a beautiful vocal rendition, performed live in concert by the Lumina Vocal Ensemble. The video description gives the original text of the song and its translation into modern English.
