Alleluia Nativitas

 

"The Orlando Consort's gusto is irresistible. You will be rewarded by this intelligent anthology, which no collector of early music can afford to miss"
—American Record Guide

"La grand qualité de l'interprétation vient avant tout de soin extrême apporté à la vitalité interne des compositions: choix de tempos allants, pureté et la précision de la diction, égalité des voix, technique parfaite d'échange de lignes mélodiques........ L'austérité que l'on craint souvent... devient ici authenticité religieuse, dont la modernité est intrinsiquement liée à la simplicité de l'exécution, et à la fusion totale des quatres chanteurs. Remarquable."
—Repertoire des Disques Compacts

Metronome (MET CD 1001)

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.
