Format: Audio CD
De Visée was a composer and lutenist at the French court from about 1680 to 1730 and the music here represents that early baroque style. De Visée drew on the influence of both the Italian and French schools and both are evident here. There are some more lively dance-like movements, but much of the music is generally quite contemplative and has a semi-improvised feel about it and one often gets the sense of the Royal Lutenist playing for the King to soothe his cares away. It is perhaps not crammed with melodic and harmonic invention, but it is a lovely, gentle programme of music.

What makes this disc especially enjoyable is the sound of the theorbo which (as you will almost certainly already know if you're looking at this page) is a larger, deeper-toned cousin of the lute. I hadn't heard of Fred Jacobs before trying this disc, but he plays beautifully. The recorded sound is excellent, capturing the instrument's full, resonant depth of tone. This is a very enjoyable CD and warmly recommended.

Great Visee interpretation overall. Unfortunately birds can be heard singing rather loudly in the background, sometimes overpowering the music. It's not that I dislike bird songs and at times the natural bird sounds complement the pieces well (especially at the ends of happier movements). Unfortunately, the singing does not mix well with the mostly somber D minor piece. This album would have deserved 5 stars if producers had just shut the windows.
