Notes & Reviews:

12th and 13th Century meldoies and texts from Southern France and Spain, by Peire Cardenal, Guilhem Figueira, Peire Espanhol, Alfonso el Sabio and others.

The French Télérama say it best, "The performance by Anne Azéma and her associates is seductive. The voices are beautiful and generous, with just the right touch of sensuality and warmth that has for too long been absent in this kind of ensemble; the instrumentation is ingenious."

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Abbaye de Gellone, Saint-Guilhem-le-Déser, France (07/11/1998-07/18/1998).
