From the program notes of the Anonymous 4 recording:

During the high Middle Ages, Christian Europe was swept up in a wave of passionate adoration of the virgin Mary. If we may judge by surviving sources of sacred music and poetry, nowhere was her cult stronger than in the British Isles, where Ladymasses and other special votive services were said and sung daily in churches large and small.

The English adored the "spotless rose," virgin both before and after bearing Jesus; and the central event in her life, the Nativity, fascinated them almost as much as did Mary herself. The topics of the incarnation, the virgin birth, and Jesus' humble origins occur so often in medieval English song and poetry that it sometimes seems as if it were the English who gave form and substance to the celebration of Christmas.

These works express a range of responses to these marvels: mirth and joy, wonder and praise, and even theological exegesis. But the thread that ties this music together is a striving toward something out of the ordinary, a special sound or gesture, reserved for this most wonderful time.
