This disc makes a great introduction to Renaissance dance music for the uninitiated. The music is mostly Renaissance top pops, including some delightful dances from Praetorius's collection Terpsichore and even one by Henry VIII. Calliope, which gives very entertaining concerts, plays with spirit throughout, and the recording captures the individual sounds of the authentic instruments. This is also a good disc for people with short attention spans: not only are the individual pieces brief, but so is the entire disc (41:53). -- Leslie Gerber

Format: MP3 Music
I have owned this cd since the mid 80's, and return to it again and again. It is charming and bright, and my children, when they were young, would love to dance when I put this on. Often this music is presented in a very dry and academic manner: it is refreshing to hear it played with such a great sense of fun: you can imagine a true "Renaissance Revel". I especially found the anonymous French dances infectiously happy. It is simple music making, and the sounds of some of the instruments may be a bit unfamiliar, and to some, a bit raucous, but done with great skill and verve. Listen to the samples: if you like them, you'll love the whole disc.

Track 7 alone would make this whole album worth it! Can't stop listening to these songs. . . . .

I owned this recording "way back" when it was on vinyl and it was always one of my favorites. I was delighted to find it on CD after I sold my turntable and all my LPs. If you like harpsichord music, you will really enjoy this recording.

Rare but wonderful album. So glad I managed to locate a copy. If you enjoy that lovely medieval sound then this is a must buy. Every track is timeless and (for me) never get's old. Thanks Amazon 10/10

A very good CD for Renaissance type music, but not an excellent one. If you have tons of this sort of music already, then buy this one for something a bit different.
