Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Authentic' requires a pinch of salt but Savall captures the spirit wonderfully.

BBC Music Magazine
Brilliantly engineered, the contrasts of colours, play with textures and mix of timbres infuse the disc with vitality.

The Telegraph
Each piece is given its own distinctive flavour with a scoring chosen from Hespèrion XXI's intriguing palette of instrumental colours, which include not only bowed and plucked strings, flutes and a panoply of percussion, but also dulcimer, hurdy-gurdy and a piquant pair of oboe-like chalemies. Toe-tappingly compulsive rhythmic energy and exuberance, combined with improvisatory spontaneity, give the performances an appealing air of timelessness

The Guardian
Savall and Hesperion XXI have made their own decisions about the details of instrumentation and rhythmic shapes that are not indicated in the originals, and introduce melodic embellishments and passages of improvisation where it seems appropriate. The engaging results evoke a very distant musical world without too much self-conscious posturing or tendentious theorising.

The Times
Savall’s interpretations of the bare melodies are studious, restrained, but never dry and they create much haunting magic. Originally this was dance music for the medieval rich and famous, but we can all join in now.
