Product Description

The Toronto Consort, dir. David Fallis

Amazon.com

For more than 25 years, the Toronto Consort has been researching and presenting innovative performances of early music. The seven-member ensemble specializes in music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and often combines with other musicians, dancers, and occasionally actors to bring centuries-old music to life for modern audiences. This wonderful collection of pieces by the great Franco-Flemish master Orlando di Lasso primarily features solo and ensemble vocal works, all of them secular songs and madrigals whose sole subject is love. While most have a certain refinement in both music and text, the disc's final selection depicts a wild, somewhat bawdy street scene "complete with squawking roosters and quarreling lovers." One of the disc's highlights is a gorgeous duet with recorder and organ. --David Vernier

Format: Audio CD
This is a beautiful recording. The voices are just right for the music with very fine technique and tone. Lassus offers a wonderful choice of music of which they have taken full advantage. For the most part the sequence and recording quality is good with the exception of Bon Jour Mon Coeur which is simply different and comes out of nowhere. Thank you for a CD of repeated enjoyment.

This album is simply phenomenal, whether you are a fan of early music or not. It is relaxing, romantic, and ethereal at times. Worth every penny!
