Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This first volume in a series that "explores the riches of French and English music between the 12th and 15th centuries" features excellent examples of tuneful and rhythmically engaging pieces from a vast repertoire of secular and sacred songs. Some selections are in French, others are in Latin; most are for three or four voices, although there are a few solo and two-part songs. Several instrumental "estampies," played on medieval fiddle, add color to the program. Although the music itself is entertaining--especially in these excellent performances by one of the world's preeminent early music ensembles--it's also fun to follow the texts, which, along with their beguiling melodies, often deal quaintly but seriously--and often desperately--with love and courtship. This disc is a perfect introduction to a fascinating musical world that speaks directly to the senses. --David Vernier

I must thank the Rough Guide for recommending this CD or troubadour songs and religious music perfectly sung by Gothic Voices. The troubadours during the thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries became the first composers to compose secular music using their own language: French instead of Latin. They had a profound impact on cultural life singing about love and court matters until their influence waned during the Crusades.
Some of my personal favorites were the songs En cest, the Credo and the song by Prince "Plaisance" which is one of the most beautiful songs of the period.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in Early Music.

The tuneful simplicity of the works on this disc, the first in an outstanding series by Page and his excellent ensemble, is bracing and refreshing. The program is well-balanced for listening to all the way through, with solo and duet pieces nicely mixed in with full ensemble selections. Anyone who is in doubt about the diversity of mood and sound of early music should hear the imagination, personality, and skill Page and the Gothic Voices bring to every track on this disc.
Check out the following discs in the same series, or any of the Hyperion recordings by the Gothic Voices.
