As with the previous CD'S in this box I am thoroughly enchanted by what I hear. For most people it takes some adapting to this music, but for me it sounds quite natural and unspoiled. It is after all a dip in times far away, and gives a fairly good impression of how this music might have sounded. A world so far away that it is almost a miracle to have music from that time at all. The synergy that is with La Reverdie, is beyond imagining beautiful, and feels so close to that time. The strangeness of this performing style is one that does not come easy to most listeners, but it's worthwhile to sit still and let the sound get into your system. It will not take long before it is mesmerizing you into the world it tries to portray, and it feels like a privilege to be with them. The sound is exemplary.
