Musica Universalis is an early-music ensemble based in Portland, Oregon. The band plays mostly music of medieval Europe, with occasional time-traveling excursions to the more recent past. With an eclectic variety of projects including concerts, plays, dances, and even puppet shows, the group is equally at home on stage, in front of the stage, at the party, and in the tavern.
