“The Princess and the Fool” is the soundtrack to the play of the same name written by Bret Carter.

Pirates that you might find yourself singing along with.

If you like soundtracks, medieval music, or pirates, give this a spin and let me know what you think! If you want more music in this vein, check out “The Chamber of Keys”. By the way, the album cover was derived from a snapshot of a stained class window in Ireland that I found intriguing.
