Notes & Reviews:
The elegant, keyless, cylindrical flute of the sixteenth century had a reedy, penetrating sound, closer to the cornetto than to any other wind instrument of the day. It had an impressive range of two and a half octaves and an evenness of tone quality that would not be matched again until the nineteenth century. Flutist Kate Royal and the Attaignant Consort, joined by early music luminaries Nigel North, Mathieu Langlois and Marta Granziolino, demonstrate their talents as both scholars and exponents of this engaging and entertaining instrumental repertoire in a program of this charming, dramatic and highly listenable music.
