Renaissance Faire

Album: Shadow of the Moon (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 4 minutes 16 seconds, the 9th track from the 1997 debut album Shadow of the Moon is based rather loosely on "Basse Danse Bergeret" by Tielman Susato, one of Ritchie Blackmore's favorite Mediaeval composers. His adaptation and the lyrics by Candice transform it into what would become a rather typical and beautiful Blackmore's Night song in the years to come. >>
