Notes & Reviews:

Dorian Records has distinguished itself in this new recording from Les Witches entitled "Fortune My Foe." Some Dorian renaissance discs lack authenticity to a fault, but that is not the case here. The all-instrumental group, comprised of violin, recorders, lute and harpsichord bring a program of delightful short pieces (most under 3 minutes) that will lift your spirits.
