Ex Silentio play music from the mediterranean countries from medieval times and early renaissance, from traditional sources as well as from art music like the ‘Cantigas de Santa Maria’. With music from different countries around the mediterranean sea, they create a vivid and colourful portrait of that time and culture, mixing dance music, songs and instrumental pieces.

We recorded this CD in 2014 in an abandoned monastery on the small island of Tinos in Greece. The exceptional silence and seclusion of the place helped a lot to create an intensive and mesmerizing album.
