Making a collection of beautiful texts and music was an enjoyable, learned pastime, partaken of by clerics, students and nobles. It was both creative and collaborative.

This project takes its name and inspiration from a long, bloody tale in a medieval Danish ballad. You can read the text online.

 

But life is not always so bloody and dancing and loving at midsummer time features as well.
