"The Lost Crusade" with Cantori Borealis
 
Cantori Borealis is Mistress Orlaith's choir that she assembles and conducts every year at Pennsic. As Orlaith walked the Camino this spring she chose "Roads and Pilgrimages" as this years theme. This song was my contribution to that effort.

Written over 25 years ago, "The Lost Crusade" has always been something of an oddity to me; I am quite fond of it, but it never seemed to catch an audience's attention. I think the addition of a choir singing harmony is transformative.

I hope you like it.
