Format: Audio CD
Out of the twenty or so Medieval and Renaissance albums I own and the 50 or so that I've listened to, this ranks as one of my favorite (top 2). This is a completely instrumental album 70+ minutes in length. There are over 70 instruments played by seven performers. The instruments range from strings, renaissance guitars, flutes and percussion gathered from all over the world. The arrangements are creative, rich, lavish and create a musical atmosphere which is truly enchanting. The choices of instrument combinations varies considerably, often in a single song, to make a stagnant melody progress and transform. Although the title says 41 variations of a single melody, I only recognize a few melodies reappearing in different forms throughout the 32 tracks. In sum, this is the renaissance/medieval album I had always wanted to hear, and am glad to have found. I hope you enjoy it!

This is a stunning disc. It may be "legendary" as is claimed on this page, but I'd not come across it before and the loss has been mine. It is a collection of instrumental music from the 15th- to the 17th-Centuries, some anonymous and some by the great composers of the period like Francesco da Milano and Josquin Desprez. I have found that collections like this can be terrific but they can also be rather dry and hard work. This is in the terrific category.

The ensemble uses a wide variety of instruments, all of which are played brilliantly in a collection of generally short pieces ranging from brisk dances to lovely slower and melodic airs. It's a truly wonderful experience, partly because of the quite fantastic quality of the recorded sound which is full, resonant and with every instrument crystal clear.

I am sorry to sound gushing, but I was genuinely bowled over by this disc on first hearing and I still love it. I would say that you don't even need to be an Early Music enthusiast - anyone with any interest in music whatever will find much to enjoy here. Very warmly recommended

I would fully endorse the reviews made by the previous contributors and would add that this is a superb recording, too. The CD appears to be a direct copy form the original two track tape (its AAD, meaning no digital mixing) and the sound is stunning. Proof the simple, high quality analogue equipment delivered amazing results.

I heard a segment of this collection on Public Radio in 2003. Everywhere that I looked, claimed this album was no longer in print. I found it right here on Amazon.com, in 2006! For those inclined to enjoy ancient music, I must say this about the album: GLORIOUSLY MEDIEVAL AND RAPTUROUSLY RENAISSANCE! In fact, if there is one track alone which justifies your purchase, it it Spaniol Kochesberger, by Hans Kotter. In fact, I would say that the majority of the music on this CD are great selections. I have been disappointed by other Medieval and Renaissance compliations, in which there are one or two interesting selections, and the rest of the CD is tiresome choral chanting. That is not the case here!
