Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Mark Cudek (cittern, viol); Mary Anne Ballard (rebec, viol); Larry Lipkis (viol, recorder).

Baltimore Consort is well-known for their skillful renditions of Renaissance music, and Ladyes Delight, their 1998 release, definitely continues that tradition. Here they perform the "broken consort," or mixed-ensemble secular music, for instruments such as bandora, cittern, viol, flute, and lute. The melodies are resplendent with the multiple layers and textures that the artists offer with much joyous enthusiasm, from the lucidly balladic "Yonder Comes a Courteous Knight" to the cheerfully lilting "Jumpe at My Cozen." This is another must-have album for Renaissance music collectors. ~ Murrday Fisher
