After more than 16 years from its first press, this summer will finally see the re-release of one of Ataraxia’s most celebrated and popular albums – maybe their most ‘modern classcial / neo- folk’ – inspired albums. Deleted for years, Historiae comes in fresh, completely digitally re- mastered audio quality, in Digipak and including an EXCLUSIVE bonus-Track: Ataraxia's version of legendary Italian folk singer Fabrizio de André’s «Fila la Lana».  «Historiae» is a sonorous book carrying the emotional burden of several lives consumed in that age, in those places. Single stories that dissolved in the oblivion annihilating the individual to save only big events. Ataraxia have listened to the lively narrations of some pilgrims, the sad stories of forgotten ladies, they have shared other people's lives while visiting villages whose names were unknown to them. In their turn, as wandering minstrels, they have transformed all of this into music and brought you these «Historiae» before taking other ways... The first part of the album was recorded in studio during the 1997 Autumn equinox, while the second part was recorded live, in a Medieval court, during the 1998 Spring equinox. «Historiae» are tales narrated in front of a fireplace during the long winter evenings or along the narrow lanes of a forgotten burg. In these songs we can feel the presence of people who lived in Medieval villages and the flavour of our roots. Listening to the rolls of the drums and the blares of trumpets, we can trace a path leading from an atavic past straight to our present.

Ataraxia - Histrionia (03:16)
I wanted to make a video to reflect the meaning of this song, which shows that no matter if you laugh or cry, Death will come sooner or later. Then, why we should be sad when we can be laughing? Ataraxia - Histrionia: Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi ridi, ridi, ridi poiche domani piangerai Oh bel messere vi rimirate invano nello specchio mentitore delle vanita il vostro bel viso pallido e diafano domani, sol domani il vaiolo sfigurato avra Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi ridi, ridi, ridi poiche domani piangerai Oh dolce madonna, padrona di virtu da chiunque amata e riverita a volonta ogni vostro onere ed ogni vostro onore morendo di parto vi porterete nell'al di la Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi ridi, ridi, ridi poiche domani piangerai Oh nobil signore dalla viril prestanza oggi fate il computo delle vostre proprieta castelli, terre, uomini che oggi possedete domani a ferro e fuoco il nemico mettera Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi ridi, ridi, ridi poiche domani piangerai Leggiadra giovinetta affacciata sulla vita danzate arie amene e ricevete il baciaman sguardi furtivi ed attesi amori dimenticate poiche domani in convento vostro padre vi menera Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi ridi, ridi, ridi poiche domani piangerai Io che son giullare e nulla possiedo ne terre, ne virtu, ne bellezza e castita oggi sono vostro umil servitore domani servitore di chi vi rovinera [Más Letras en es.mp3lyrics.org/qqJ] Ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi io sono il giullar non temo nemico ne maesta ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi, ridi io sono il giullar non temo nemico ne maesta [English version:] Laugh, Laugh, Laugh, Laugh, Laugh, Laugh, Laugh Laugh, Laugh, Laugh 'cause tomorrow you'll cry.
