Jesus Loves You: The Mediaeval Baebes and "Love Me Broughte"

Now you've done it! The Global Music Randomizer has gone mediaeval on your keesters for today's tune by the Mediaeval Baebes. Love Me Broughte is from their 2003 album Mistletoe and Wine. The Mediaeval Baebes began in 1996 when a group of friends led by Katherine Blake of Miranda Sex Garden broke into a North London cemetery and sang a capella in flowing white robes and leaf garlands. They soon became an ensemble, and their first album, Salva Nos, shot to number two on the classical charts. It didn't hurt that they were all beautiful and very talented. The group has since had many incarnations. They sing in an array of obscure and ancient languages, and have placed three albums in the top ten of the classical charts and participated in the BBC's television series The Virgin Queen. The songs lyrics translate to a love song sung by humanity's savior to humankind.
