Passion


"The singing is superb, the individual parts easily identifiable yet marvellously blended"
—Gramophone

"..the Orlando's finest achievement yet. The Orlandos maintain the unanimity of ensemble one has come to expect of them, matched by an unprecedented brilliance of individual contributions...this recording is a must for collectors, and an ideal place for those who might wish to begin sampling the treasures of the high fifteenth century."
—Gramophone

What am I listening to?

You are listening to Je suis aussi com cils qui est ravis, a ballade by Guillaume de Machaut for three voices. As Tamsyn Mahoney-Steel puts it in her excellent liner notes for The Single Rose, our most recent recording for Hyperion Records, it is “the song of one depleted by the ravages of love.” “My head is filled with no thoughts …. Save for those of my lady love,” laments the poet-composer. You can hear more on the Hyperion website, read the engaging liner notes, and order or download tracks or the entire album in a number of formats.
