If ever there has been music composed only for connoisseurs, it was the avant-garde music of the 14th Century that self-consciously called itself Ars Nova -- New Art -- and later Ars Subtilior -- Subtler Art. Literally, it was not for everyone, since only the upmost elite of chivalric society would ever have heard it. At the tiptop pinnacle of elitism was the illustrious Valois Duc Jean de Berry, the epitome of "taste" and collector/patron of everything beautiful and rare. It was he who commissioned the exquisite illuminated manuscript known as "Les Tres Riches Heures" from the Limbourg Brothers and their successors, a treasure that wasn't completed until decades after Jean's death. Jean was renowned as a patron of the most refined music and the least refined avarice. The music included on this recording is known to have been composed for specific celebrations in the Duc's life - mostly weddings - or written by members of Jean's 'inner circle' of connoisseurs. A substantial share of all surviving Ars Nova music, except that of Guillaume Machaut, comes from a single manuscript, the Chantilly Codex, which is the source of all but three of the twelve pieces on this CD.

Ars Nova was, however, not just 'luxury merchandise' for the super-rich; it was also the exuberant response of musicians to the fantastic possibilities of evolving mensural notation, which allowed them to 'work out' rhythmic intricacies at the outer edge of aural perception and digital/vocal agility. Ars Nova aspired to be both aristocratically graceful and intellectually bizarre. Besides Machaut, the great composers of the era were the polymath Philippe de Vitry, Jacob Senleches, Solages, Egidius, Trebor, and the immortal Anonymous.

Totally amazing. Beautiful soulful performances of masterly compositions. The composers of the Ars Subtillior are every bit as skillful as Beethoven or Bach. These unknown gems deserve to be heard. This cd also comes with well written and interesting historical background and a good translation of the texts. The singers on this recording have a beautiful tone and an exquisite sense of phrasing. The instrumentalists are equally accomplished. The composite tone colors that the ensemble achieves are stunningly sensual. I can't stop listening to this.

The Ferrara Ensemble is first rate, and this recording shows them at their best performing a selection of vocal and instrumental pieces from the court of the Jean, Duc de Berry (1340-1416).
