Smell of Wine and Cheap Perfume

Music from the Middle Ages is for suckers anyway.

Anachronisms only work if everyone is on board. Like joke characters or pop culture references, anachronisms can take people right out of the game world, breaking immersion. Use with caution. But, often times, people don’t actually know what things were like historically. Medieval music and instruments are a blind spot for many, with semi-historical movies being the primary source of inspiration. Minstrels dancing while playing a lute and such. So our perceptions have a strong anachronistic slant.
