Notes & Reviews:

This disc tells a story of interactions between musicians of the Ottoman court and European musicians who had settled across the way, on the Galata Hill, at the time of the fall of Constantinople in 1453. The program opens on the Christian side with the motet of lamentation composed by Guillaume Dufay in 1453. The "Lamentatio sanctae matris ecclesiae Constantinopolitanae" is a dazzling testimony to the repercussions of this fall during the Occident. On the Ottoman side, the court musicians respond with an original repertoire; a synthesis of every influence present at the Sublime Porte. After times of war and conquest come times of exchange, as relations between Christian and Muslim communities became more cordial and business between the two continued.
