Medieval Songs for Easter

Here is a YouTube playlist of medieval music for Easter. (It's just that time of year.) I tried to pick the nicest recordings, and ones that seem actually to be medieval scores or arrangements but I don't claim expertise in this area - this is purely recreational.
 

A Burgeoning Bibliography, or, New Work in Medieval Song

Here at Medieval Song we've developed a bibliography of scholarship on medieval lyric and song. The most recent addition is a discussion of some of the essays in the 2011 University of Exeter book Citation, Intertextuality and Memory in the Middle Ages and Renaissance: Volume One, Text, Music and Image from Machaut to Ariosto. We'd like to continue building the bibliography by crowdsourcing it.
