Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
I've anticipated this disc since being blown away by Volume 1 in 2012. Mesmerising immediacy and earthiness, worth the wait.

Early Music Review, December 2013
The retrouange struck me as the song that I will remember, it is presumably modern... and is refreshingly short.

Early Music Today, December 2013
They achieve- par excellence- that elusive, essential impression of time travel, opening a window to admit a blast of unrefined medieval air... all pervasive, yet these earthy voices are invariably extraordinary in their technique, timbre and immersion in both style and text... I can hardly wait for volume three.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This process of contrafactum is very important through music history, and was especially prominent in the Middle Ages. In addition, the recording includes three religious songs by Robert de Reins La Chievre, two by Martin le Beguin de Cambrai, one by Chanoine de Saint-Quentin, and one anonymous lyric. Since so many of the trouvere songs are in the tradition of courtly love, this anthology of devotional song is most welcome. Full texts and translations along with an interesting essay only enhance the value of this new release.
