Especially wonderful is the "Bergamasca" played on the archlute.
This is a difficult CD to find, and with Amazon's great price, I bought several additional to give as gifts. ;-)
I had a problem playing the CD on my Mac Mini with Itunes 10.5.1. Tonight I got a software update notice, saying that Itunes 10.5.2 fixes a problem that causes distortion when playing or adding certain CDs to the library. This disc was one of the problematic ones, but updating to Itunes 10.5.2 fixed the problem. The CD now plays perfectly.
I would probably not have bought this CD if it were not for the combination of artist O'Dette's reputation plus the recording label, Hyperion, whose relatively pricy works are always superior, especially for performances involving a small ensemble.
I usually listen to all music simply for the visceral punch, or in an attempt to educate my viscera to get more punch from an unfamiliar style of music.
While this recording does not leave my viscera unengaged, it is outstanding in the sense that it successfully involves my higher cognitive functions, which Mick and Keith rarely reach.
Very highly recommended as a sample of old music.
