An in my view important part of the work on one of my settings is to
search for the right music that supports the "feel" of the setting. For
a pseudo-historical setting I usually prefer music from the period in
question to, for example, movie soundtracks which attempt to "mo-
dernize" the original pieces.
For the Thule setting my "main themes" will be the Saltarello and the
Estampie as played by Aran Zoltan, who also recreated several of the
songs of the 13th century, including the Palästinalied (which I will use
for the knights of the order) and some more bawdy songs from the
Carmina Burana (the original versions, not the Orff ones).
The two main themes, the Palästinalied and one of the tavern songs
from you tube:
