Mon Coeur Se Recommande À Vous - Owain Phyfe - Voice & Vihuela
Owain Phyfe was a beautiful musician. I first heard his music on Renradio. I was intrigued by the sound of his music, even though I was a bit frustrated because I didn't understand the words. (This was back in the olden ages of the internet, and the music wasn't always identified.)
I found him by accident playing at the North Carolina Renaissance Faire. (Now defunct, I believe.) I was in love... with his music. I bought some of his tapes (CD players were very expensive back then.) I actually planned out some of my RenFaire trips just to catch him when he was playing at certain faires.
Owain passed away from cancer just over two years ago. Please go to Nightwatch Recording and buy his "new" album, "Voice & Vihuela."
On an aside, I need to get some cash scraped together to pick up the last few CD's by Cantiga that I don't own yet. I had always planned on buying them when I saw them in person, but I have not seen them in person for a few years.
