I ran across this recently, and I've been utterly entranced by it for the last week or so.

Senfl was an enormously gifted melodist, practically the Schubert of his time, and that's saying something, not only because Schubert might have been the greatest melodist who ever lived, but because Senfl had plenty of competition in 1500 as a melodist.

He wrote a fair amount of impressive sacred music, but it's in the german lied of his time that he shines above all others.

It's worth noting that he wasn't just a song-writer..he had a profound grasp of his craft, and was capable of the most elaborate, and melodic, counterpoint, which is on full display in this recording, along with the most simple and beautifully soulful singing.

This disk is full of lied. Some for consort of viols alone, most in the style of the renaissance tenorlied, going back to the 13th century. The song lyrics are a varied lot, from typical love songs of the time, to a long autobiographical song that reveals quite a bit about Senfl's approach to his art, to slyly, implicitly sexual songs, to a bewitchingly beautiful song that concludes the recording, about the evils of money--some things never change!

Technical quality of the recording is absolutely flawless, capturing the delicate sounds of the viols, the intimate ambiance typical of the time...Fretwork's playing is perfect-plus, as usual, and you can't say enough about Charles Daniels' singing: it's hypnotically beautiful, he really gets you to feel the lyrics, and he meshes perfectly with the viols.

If I could give this recording 10 stars, I would. It's that good. Even if early renaissance music is not your thing, try this. It is, in the manner of all masterwork, both intensely of its time, and timeless.

In May by Ludwig Senfl is instrumentally performed by Fretwork. The singing of Charles Daniels, tenor, is very special as I imagine Herr Senfl intended it. Fretwork and Charles Daniels are most balanced and lovely. I say it is as pleasing as Cipriano De Rore's Missa Praeter Rerum Seriem by the Tallis Scholars -a true gem. This would make a most excellent gift if one wishes to share it.

Ludwig Senfl: Im Maien is a recording that I was very curious to listen to since prior to hearing this cd I had no idea who this composer was. To my pleasent surprise Ludwig Senfl was a composer of great ability that can be said to rival the prowess of John Dowland. Here we get to hear the amazing vocal skills of Charles Daniels. David Fallows has written informative and well-written liner-notes. The lyrics are available in German and English. Truly a masterwork for all ages. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.

This is a very good recording of some of Senfl's consort songs and music for viols. The performances are excellent, but for me Senfl's music isn't consistently great. He was a prolific composer who was a younger contemporary of Josquin and his generation, spanning the late 15th- and early 16th Centuries and a pupil of Heinrich Isaac. The music here is enjoyable, with some engaging songs and one or two truly lovely pieces for viol consort (I found the penultimate track, Lamentatio extremely affecting, for example), but as a whole it doesn't quite have the depth or variety to maintain my interest throughout.

What redeems it is the musicianship of Charles Daniels and Fretwork. Daniels is a marvellous singer who brings all his skill and emotional engagement to the songs here, and Fretwork are, as always, just brilliant as a consort. The combination is a winning one and the sheer sound and atmosphere of the disc is a huge pleasure.

So...slightly mixed feelings about this disc. I'm glad I have it and have heard a decent slice of Senfl's music. The performances are terrific, but the music isn't really good enough to make this a favourite in the way that Robin Blaze and Concordia performing Byrd have become, for example Byrd: Consort Songs. It's definitely of interest to lovers of music of this period, but I can't quite recommend it wholeheartedly.
