Away, away to Sardinia for a time; and today I have been listening to some of the island's traditional polyphonic singing and have been amazed. Take a listen to this Andy Kershaw show where he explores the music of both Corsica and Sardinia. Great radio. The music sounds ancient to me, from ago - there are elements of plainchant to this, but something else also, something almost Arabic in ornamentation. It makes my hair stand on end.
