For me this was an essential buy, because I am fascinated by Mediæval music. This music as no other, transports you easily back to the basics of the music in those times. And in this interpretation I am totally convinced by its validity. It sounds to my ears mediæval, for La Reverdie makes it sound authentic.
Of course it is all guess work, but the possibilities of the instruments used and the singing matching to it, does not leave any other option than to do it this way. And I for one am very happy with the result, and it is a joy to listen to these fabulous artists. The voices particularly are mesmerizing. Just listen to "Segugi a corde" probably composed by Magister Pietro, 1340-1350. A piece in which all the voices shine at this bright musical sky. And as it is all pieces on this CD follow the same pattern. A delicious musical table filled with the finest food and wine imaginable.
The recording is state of the Art, as are the performances.
