Notes & Reviews:

The Chansonnier Cordiforme is a songbook, probably copied in 1475 for a roguish but musically cultivated priest named Jean de Montchenu a contemporary chronicler called him dissolute and full of all the vices. The beautiful manuscript containing 43 songs is, uniquely, heart-shaped and covered in velvet. This recording presents both a representative cross-section of the manuscripts repertoire, the majority of which is set to French texts and is among the best known and beautiful of the age, and a portfolio of differing performance options including instruments. In addition to works by such luminaries as Gilles Binchois and Johannes Ockeghem music of elegant melody, textural refinement, and sometimes startling harmonic turns there are ingenious and anonymous parodies of popular songs.
