Leyriath Assemblage, found by Ricardo Alves Pereira is dedicated to present the folkloric, historical, geographical and ancestral lore of Leiria and its neighboring regions. The tales can be heard in some TWB Ensemble concerts where the ensemble accompanies the legends with unique arrangements of medieval and renaissance music.
