Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Crossing the Channel" is a result of Paris based Ensemble Providencia exploring the curious developmental connections in language and music between France and England during the Medieval Era.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The four women of Ensemble Providencia have obviously modeled their sound and repertoire on Anonymous 4 (Mar/Apr 1993: 179, Nov/Dec 1995: 260), though their voices are colored with just a bit more vibrato, without losing clarity or sureness of intonation. There are other similar anthologies of medieval English music - I think of Liber UnUsualis (July/Aug 2005: 242) - but if you prefer male voices, the Orlando Consort is to be recommended (Nov/Dec 1993: 245).

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Abbatiale of Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne (05/2011).
