Notes & Reviews:

Her voice has been described as luminous, dazzling and shining. She is an artist of uncommon musical artistry, whose passion for her art form embraces repertoire ranging from early to contemporary music. La Nef is a company dedicated to the creation and production of early and contemporary music. Its approach aims at creating worlds of sounds that are often based on little known or original music and that integrate historical and theatrical elements.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The performances are all quite stylish. There are earlier attempts to supply music for the troubadour songs that survive without notation in the medieval manuscripts. One of the most creative was the 1976 collaboration between an Occitan folksinger, Claude Marti, and the Early Music Quartet, led by then expatriate American, Thomas Binkley (EMI 26500, including a young Paul O'Dette on guitar). The song, 'Na Carenza' also appears on Jordi Savall's 1978 collection of reconstructed trobairitz cansos (EMI 63417), in a much more medieval style, since Savall's version is based on an actual troubadour melody by Arnaut de Maruelh.
