Format: Audio CD
This is a marvellous disc, one which sustains, indeed demands repeated listening. It could well be the best thing the veteran fretwork viol ensemble have ever done. These are not dance pieces but songs without words - instrumental arrangements of the Franco-Flemish polyphonic art-songs of the fifteenth century - compiled and arranged by an early sixteenth printer (the first music printer ever in fact), and played on viols which aproximate those used c 1600.
Fretwork outdo themsleves, playing these pieces with an an almost violin- like crispness and precision of attack, and producing a silverly, "throaty" sonority characteristic of viols. In a generous 70 minute+ programme, they skillfully alternate pieces in 3 parts with those scored up to a full 6. This is, if not music expressly intended to 'move' to, then music of gravity and emotion, the distillation of what even in the 1500's was seen as a pioneering age for art music, to be listened to in the same breath as the late Beethoven quartets.

I like this CD very much. The only thing that I can say that is bad about it is that it does not have any singing - it has all instrumentals. The beauty of this genre is not readily aparent at first exposure. The tunes are not as "catchy" as those in the frottola genre. However, after several sessions of listening to it, the subtle beauty begins to grow and reveal itself, like a vine growing on a tree trunk. These works are really quite exquisite once you get to know them, lovely like flowers on a vine. The composers are an excellent representation of the genre. I recommend it to singers who have the sheet music and want to use a recording as a study tool. Dr. Marion Ceruti, mezzosoprano

Few people are aware that Petrucci developed printed music and he was responsible for the printed dissemination of many works of composers of the Prima Prattica. Represented here on this CD are works by virtually every really major composer of this time including Isaac, Josquin, Agricola, Obrecht and Brumel - only de la Rue and Gombert seem to be at all missing. The idea of recording them is a brilliant one and Fretwork really make their instruments sing with the lovely rich tone characteristic of a chest of viols. I agree that these works may require multiple listens to fully appreciate but with their contrapunctal intricacies, they contain great depth and beauty that are richly rewarding - reminiscent of the Art of Fugue or the Musical Offering of Bach. The comparison is all the more apt when you consider that Bach would have had many of these composers, especially Josquin, held up to him as models from which to learn the art of counterpoint.

Format: Audio CD
This is yet another wonderful reissue in HM's excellent Gold series. It is a collection of late-15th Century pieces by various great composers including Josquin, Obrecht and Isaac, set for viol consort. The exact provenance of the works and their arrangements is given in very interesting detail in the notes, and they form a fascinating, beautiful and varied programme.

Fretwork, as always, play superbly. They are a terrific ensemble with a long established reputation as one of the world's finest viol consorts. They play together with an effortless precision and the sound the make is lovely and often thrilling. Although the tone of the pieces of the time and of this collection is generally melancholy it never becomes turgid or depressing because the musicians invest it with real feeling, and what shines through is sheer beauty.

In short, this is an absolutely outstanding disc of wonderful music beautifully played, and I recommend it very warmly.

Format: Audio CD
Sorry to say, this music is not my cup of tea. It seems a bit dull and unobtrusive, rarely toe tapping in any shape or form. After a time, I found myself wanting to put on something else. Still, the music is well performed by one of the great early instrument ensembles. I do enjoy music for viols, but this music just may be a bit too "early" for me. If you appreciate this genre, you might wish to audition prior to purchase.
