Notes & Reviews:

"Christopher Page and the Gothic Voices' 1985 release "The Garden of Zephyrus: Courtly Songs of the Early Fifteenth Century" was the follow-up to their career-making 1984 recording "A Feather on the Breath of God: Sequences and Hymns by Abbess Hildegard of Bingen" -- and it is nearly as beautiful as its predecessor albeit in an entirely different way... if fresh and expressive solos, duets, trios and quartets from the tail end of the medieval period performed by six clear-toned, heart-felt singers to the occasional accompaniment of a medieval harp recorded in clear and close digital sound appears enchanting, The Garden of Zephyrus is the disc for you." -All Music

'I don't know a finer record of such fascinating material. Beautifully done' (BBC Record Review)

'I believe this is the finest record of medieval polyphonic song yet produced' (Gramophone)
