The first 21 cuts on this CD are a re-release of the album 'Pleasures of the Court'. This was one of the first albums in this genre which showed that music of this period was really alive, not merely 'quaint'. The rest of the pieces on this CD are equally marvelous. David Munrow really began a revolution in the interpretation of renaissance music, and one wonders what he would have done had he not taken his own life at such a young age.

Simply one of the best dance compilations ever released - a definitive, fresh and energetic account of the first flowering of dance ensembles in C15-16th Europe. Still exciting nearly 20 years after its original release and a poignant reminder of the lost genius of English early music supremo David Munrow; the album was released shortly before his untimely death. Many recent collections have tried to tap into the fashion for early music but this one remains in a league of its own by virtue of the sheer energy and rhythmic drive of its performances - moving, too, in its (fewer) quiet moments. A sadly neglected "must-have".

Recommended. I first bought it on cassette in about 1978, and was delighted to re-discover it recently on CD. Evokes images of the Tudor and Jacobean royal courts. Remember this music if you should ever go to Hampton Court, or stand on Richmond Hill and look down "the matchless vale of Thames". Buy it while you can.

Pleasures of the Court was one of my favorite albums about 40 years ago. One side of the vinyl contained dances by Tielman Susato peformed in truly big band Renaissance style by the Early Music Consort of London, while the other offered dances by Thomas Morley as rendered by the Morley Consort. Both groups were directed by David Munrow. Well, those classic recordings are back thanks to this Testament release, which also has has the first group's performances of dance music by Italian contemporaries of Monteverdi. It's all incredibly engaging stuff. The Susato and Italian pieces are featured in full-bodied performances that are given heft by the presence of Renaissance wind instruments, while the Morley is rendered in softer but no less earnest tones by plucked and bowed strings. If you're a Renaissance music fan, these have to find a place on one of your shelves for sure.
