Peudargent - Capella '92, Rabaskadol          (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  December 31, 2007

The intriguingly named Martin Peudargent (meaning ‘Little Money’ in French), was born around 1510 in Huy in the Prince-Archbishopric of Liège. From the mid-1530s he is recorded as owning a house in Düsseldorf, where he probably worked as a master of music at a convent school. Starting in the late ... more
Telemann in Major - Pratum Integrum Orchestra          (10 of 10 found this review helpful)
  November 26, 2007

The Russian period instrument orchestra, Pratum Integrum, has made a number of splendid recordings on the Caro Mitis label, but none is as delightful yet than this disc - apart from the companion recording, "Telemann in Minor", that is! Sonically, this is a superb production in both stereo and ... more
Biber: Missa Christi Resurgentis - Manze          (6 of 9 found this review helpful)
  November 25, 2007

Purely from the point of view of performance, this is a disappointing recording. The instrumentalists are proficient and polished, but the voices, especially the solo singers, are poor.

The effect is so striking I think every lute recording should be issued as an SACD - though, of course, the skill of ... more

There is yet another fairly recent recording of music from Ortiz's Tratado de Glosas, by the Spanish ensemble La Reverencia: It seems to be available only in MP3 ... more

I agree. I just got the disc in the mail yesterday. I had forgotten how incredibly short the playing time is: 49 minutes only - which is a bit disappointing even at mid-price and with the re-mastering. A pity Alia Vox did not combine it with another appropriate Savall recording of Spanish music. However, this is the only quibble I have with it, ... more
