Notes & Reviews:

This series explores the riches of French and English music from 1150 to 1450. The music for this recording features the songs of the trouveres. This repertoire is so large that a hundred recitals such as this would not encompass them. The songs describe things such as love-complaints, tales of erotic adventures in the countryside, debates in verse about matters of love, political lyrics, spinning songs, prayers to the Virgin and calls to join a crusade.

'I found myself extraordinarily moved... this is a CD that grabs you and hangs on to the end' (Early Music Review)

'Radiantly beautiful music... the whole CD is one of unalloyed delight' (Classic CD)

'This is quite simply the best recording ever of the trouvere literature' (American Record Guide)

'Outstanding' (BBC Music Magazine)
