This compilation is a soothing, relaxing getaway from the normal grind of todays music. It has a blend of choral, christian type music...it will put you in that mood when you just want some piece. I've added these tracks to my iTouch and will enjoy it always. I really think that this type of music expands your mind, and lets you melt away, and as a firefighter it gives me that chance to think about other more positive things than the pain that I see on a daily basis! Great Job Amazon!

I am not a classical music expert, and barely know this style of music at all or what it's called. but I love it. As the title states Amazon was giving this way for free, and to be honest I did not expect much. I was blown away with the quality of the recording. Thanks for such a great freebie, it has led to other purchases and expanded my musical horizon quite a bit.

This is a wonderful sampler of early music similar to the Waverly Consort and the choral work of Vox Populi. It's lush, soothing & evocative. Thanks for the variety, Amazon!

Naxos consistently rocks, but this thoughtful collection is freakishly well performed and recorded. If you like classical music but haven't ventured far south of Vivaldi or Bach yet, this collection would be an awesome way to get your feet wet even if it cost a lot more. And even if you're already a fan of early music, unless you have every recording in this collection somewhere, you need to get it.

If you ask me, this reprsents the very best of Naxos Early Music and the very best of Amazon MP3 samplers. Naxos is one of my favorite labels (although "label" is probably no longer the best terminology), for making available high quality music at decent prices. This download is a real treat, and I can't describe how wonderful it is to hear this early music when I'm riding on the subway. Good on Naxos, good on Amazon.

I got this as a free download on Amazon, and I immediately loved it. The quality is superb, the pieces on here are great, and almost all of them are soothing and restful (I actually use this album to help me fall asleep). The very best one on here may be Lord Willobie's Welcome Home. I could listen it over and over. Not only is the music lovely, but I love the instrument used in it, though I'm not sure what it's called. All of the choral pieces are just beautiful. I really like The Lamentation of David and Missa Entre vous filles: Kyrie.

Listen to the music than inspired Mozart and Beethoven. This sampler is a great introduction to early music. And for readers younger than 30, I don't mean the 1950s-- ha ha ;) Seriously, this is a wonderful collection of songs from the Naxos label. It's been years since I've taken music appreciation, but I believe the era would be best classified as pre-baroque choral music, which was strongly influenced by Christian themes. The music is calming and relaxing and written in the 15-16th centuries. Not bad for stuff half a millenium old. Of course, one of the best things about this sampler is the price: FREE! If you like classical music, then this is a must have for your collection. C'mon, you can afford it!
