Notes & Reviews:

"As we might expect from a program devoted to a garden theme, there's tremendous variety on display, from the more overt harmonies and saucy rhythms to the more delicate, subtle details of phrasing, dynamics, and expressive nuance. And yet, as in any well-planned garden, these varied components all fit together in one pleasing, compatible whole, any part of which may be enjoyed separately or in the context of the greater setting."

BBC Music Magazine
This gorgeous package is like a CD-sized hardback book, full of beautiful medieval paintings and photographs of surviving gardens. ... performances are of the high standard expected from the Orlando Consort. Even settings of risqué lyrics... have an elegance that would disarm the most puritanical listener, and it's all sung with clarity and grace. Altogether a garden of delights.

Available again by popular demand, the Orlando Consort's The Rose, the Lily and the Whortleberry explores the inventiveness of European composers from the 13th - 16th centuries who used floral imagery to illustrate both earthly and heavenly love. The disc's selections effortlessly switch between enchanting representations of horticulture and sentiments that would make any gardener blush. The set includes complete song texts as well as full-color garden illustrations. As a special bonus, Christopher Bradley-Hole, one of the world's top garden designers, contributes a Medieval garden plan with a contemporary twist.
