If you want to get a good idea of what musical entertainment was like in southern France and Italy in the 13th century, or if you just want to be entertained, this recording of stylish, expert performances will satisfy your desire. The troubadours were the first to work toward perfection of poetic form and vernacular language. Dante, the famous 13th-century Italian poet, admired these articulate poet-musicians and mentioned his debt to their art in several of his works. The Martin Best Ensemble performs 18 of these immediately likable songs of love and chivalry. A few selections are instrumental only; others, performed with solo voice or voice with instruments, are delivered in an expressive style that reminds us that eloquent poetry and well-crafted melodies remain vital and undiminished in their appeal, be they eight or 800 years old. --David Vernier

By J. R. Trtek on October 26, 2012
Format: Audio CD
This has been my go-to disc for troubadour music for some time. It has some of my favorite pieces in that vein, such as Kalenda Maya, and the tunes are performed nicely, with lively percussion and those droning high-pitched voices that I suppose might annoy some people. I like it, though. Martin Best and his Mediaeval Ensemble do a fine job with it all, and if you want at least a little of this kind of music in your library, I think this is the album you ought to go with.
