5.0 out of 5 stars Early music with energy and verve 12 July 2010
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I simply have to review this early offering from The Dufay Collective after reading the 2 starred review. I can't imagine we were even listening to the same album. The reviewer certainly cannot be a musician (or not a good one) to fail to recognise what is on offer here. (The only thing I half agree on is that the artwork on the original album was far superior to this reissue.)

No one can have a conversation with this group without being impressed by their knowledge of music history, nor hear them without being impressed by their impeccable musicianship. This is not early music played by stiff, classically-trained musicians who don't know how to play a note that isn't written down. They use their skill to feel the spirit of the music, based on known historical traditions, and make it come alive like few other early music groups can do. They are true to the music because they understand the traditions and cultural contexts which gave rise to it. The Dufay Collective play music which stirs the blood and moves one to dance, which is exactly what this music is intended to do.

Buy this album. Even better, see them live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 31 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely excellent! A most unusual collection of Mediaeval pieces (discovered thanks to Radio Three's brilliant "Early Music Show") and the performances by the Dufay are outstanding.

If you love Early Music, this is definitely one for your library.
