Originally released in 1984.

This is the only album recorded by the music consort Cour des Miracles.
Cour des Miracles was a folk music group active doing the early/mid Eighties. We played French, Breton and other Euopean folk music.

This album was recorded in 1984 at Grassroots Studio and engineered by Michael O’Rourke.
Produced by Jamie Haggerty and Cour des Miracles. Digitally enhanced and remastered by Jamie Haggerty in 2001
This redux edition of the only Cour des Miracles album recorded is dedicated to the memory of Sherman Burdick, Ken White, my wife Cindy Demuth and all our friends. Those were wonderful times.
"We can find in the Cour des Miracles thieves, assassins, beggars, sorcerers, mercenaries, artists and swindlers… There are also people from the upper class (clergy, aristocracy and upper bourgeoisie) who disagree with the strict and aristocratic rules from other guilds."
---From the Rogue Guild
Cour des Miracles (“Court of Miracles”) was a group from Portland, Oregon, that grew out of Continuum, a group that was also connected to a band called Group Du Jour. Cour des Miracles’ repertoire consisted of traditional French tunes, including a few that go back as far as the Renaissance. The six-members played such instruments as hurdy-gurdy, dumbek, hammered dulcimer, recorder, concertina, melodeon, fiddle, and many others. It’s only recording was a two-track tape that has now been remastered for this deluxe edition. This is the type of group that would have been unusual for North America for the time, having appeared before Ad Vielle Que Pourra came together. A couple of selections have vocals by the only French member of the group. An interesting curio for Francophiles and an improvement over the original cassette.
