Rose Ensemble -- early (and world) music consort of Mpls.-St. Paul

Berkley turned me onto this group the other day. They started out as an early music group, specializing in Eastern European music of the Renaissance, and they've branched out into the early American choral repertory as well as Hawaiian music, etc.
