Notes & Reviews:

Notturno, the dbut recording by the ensemble L'Escadron Volant de la Reine, is the result of several years' work studying Italian music of the late 17th century. The group chose to record this repertoire for its beauty and rarity. The music lets each musician speak and the instruments carry on a dialogue as equals. The name L'Escadron Volant de la Reine means 'The Queen's Flying Squad.' This was a designation for the ladies-in-waiting recruited by Catherine de Mdici, who were given the responsibility of diplomacy at the court.
