"Dear organizers and friends of extraordinary concert experiences,
I have managed Estampie for more than 4 years and I can attest that it is a huge asset for me to work with these outstanding musicans.The most important thing for me is the close and good interpersonal contact that we consistently foster amongst ourselves. We respect and esteem the fact that everything has to reside under one roof in order for a project to run sucessfully.
Musically, Estampie has always impressed me with their breaking down of cultural, geographical, and religious borders and pushing scholarly dogma into the background. I associate Estampie with early music without the constraints with it's own spirit, a very high musical niveau, exciting arrangements as well as a creativity and musical versatility that I personally can aspire to.I look forward to the continued collaboration with these incredibly congenial musicians and am at your service for any requests you may have."

"A stirring homage to life and love, borne on the dynamic and rhythmic momentum of the instrumentalists who kindle an iridescent fire of sound. A heavenly experience of early 'world music' from an ancient time."
"Lively music beyond academic debates is a specialty of this ensemble. The result is always excellent musical quality, danceable, dreamy, and definitely worth hearing."
"Sigrid Hausen sings a ballad, about which one could say that something so beautiful hasn't been heard in a long time -- perhaps since 800 years?"
"The raw beauty of the North spellbounding on only one album. Masterful!"
Musik and Theater
"Quick, diverse, vivacious music adapted to today and virtuosically played on original instruments."
"Estampie not only rediscovers the secret magic of Scandinavia - they recreate it as something new. In both senses legendary!" Miroque
"...spin the music into a shimmering mesh of sound, in which melancholia and formal austerity in a wonderful fashion with a thrilling rhythmic and subtle passion go hand in hand."
"Between a glistening Midsummer Night and a wintery darkness. An album full of exciting facets."
"Whoever has a sense for wistful medieval manner, will fall for Estampie after the first listen."
"Estampie challenges listeners to open themselves to a music that can barely be described with words. Sounds from another time, another world, and yet still new."
"Seldom has the ensemble had more energy, expression, and warmth, but at the same time more approachable and emotional, without losing their virtuousity."
"[...] the full blooded musicians prove to their listeners, that for almost 20 years, they rightfully belong to the Top Ten of this music scene both nationally and internationally."
