I was introduced to this collection at an institute of The California Arts Project which focused on teaching beginning recorder. This CD has an excellent variety...using the different types of recorders, and music of different periods. This CD is good for developing listening skills and for appreciating the importance of the recorder throughout musical history.

I was not sure about this, but saw another 5 star rating, and decided to take the gamble. This is a really nice CD. It has all sizes of recorders played, and lots of various percussion instruments of the day. This has lots of happy ancient dance songs and more solumn sounding but beautiful peices. The cover says the group is from Argentina. I am now looking for more of their CDs.

When I first played this CD, my downstairs neighbor came up and begged me to lend it to him. I know why. It contains one hauntingly lovely piece after another, all played with exquisite taste. The recordings were made a long time ago, so this may be the only CD that will ever become available from this Argentinian group. I plan to give it as a gift to special people, including my composer brother, who writes for the flute--to encourage him to write for the recorder, too. Highly recommended.

This is a rather out-of-the-way recording which I happened to stumble across, and I'm very glad I did. It's a fascinating, often lovely and always hugely enjoyable disc of music for recorder ensemble from the 13th- to the 17th Centuries.

Much of this music was unfamiliar to me but several of the composers are very familiar - Josquin, Weelkes, Henry VIII, Marcello and Couperin to name just a few. It's a great programme, tracing the development of recorder music through the period but never sounding like an instructional treatise. The Pro Arte Recorder Ensemble are excellent throughout, using, as they proudly tell us, seven different sizes of recorder from the 10cm exilent to the 1.3 metre Grand Bass. They make a wonderful sound together, delicately augmented by a little percussion and viola da gamba or clavicord continuo in places. My sole reservation about the disc is that I find if I play it all the way through the sound of the recorder ensemble begins to get a little samey, but shorter sections at a time are an absolute joy.

I think anyone with any interest in early music will love this disc. It's fine music, excellently played and very well recorded. The presentation is attractive and the notes very informative (if a little on the dry side). This was a very happy find for me and I recommend it warmly.

I bought this as a gift for a recorderist friend of mine. I saw him yesterday and he said he loved it. Nuff said.
