My Body Must Depart, But My Heart Remains With You
Medieval Love Songs Inspired by Arthurian Romance


Anonymous: l'ome armé/Il sera pour vous
Pour tant se j'ay la barbe grise
Aux gré de mes ieulx, je vous ai choisie
Pour prison
Johannes le Grant:
Entre vous nouviaux mariés
J'atendrai tant quil vous plaira
Le souvenir de vous me tue
Dueil angoisseux
Tristre dolent
Soyes loyal
Quant la doulce jouvencelle

Anonymous: Dame d'onnour
Le corps sen va - le cuer vous demeure

Asteria burst onto the national early music scene in 2004, winning Early Music America's first Unicorn Prize for Medieval and Renaissance music with a performance heralded by The New York Times as "intimate and deeply communicative…meltingly beautiful." This engaging duo brings out the passion and emotional impact of late medieval vocal and instrumental music with timeless love songs of wide appeal, transporting their listeners back to the age of chivalry.

Eric Redlinger's skill on the lute and sweet tenor voice are complemented by his expertise in early music, earned through study at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and extensive archival research into original sources in The Hague, Basel, and Marburg. Sylvia Rhyne brings to the partnership not only her quicksilver soprano but also a strong dramatic connection with the audience, gained from a professional career in musical theater.
