Product Description

Review

Plunging headlong into the sonorities and moods of a long-lost world, Hesperion charges each melody with invention and daring...Brilliantly engineered, the contrasts of colours, play with textures and mix of timbres infuse the disc with vitality. The uniqueness of this recording is equal to that of its source. --Berta Joncus, BBC Music Magazine

Jordi Savall's discs can always be relied on to widen listeners' musical horizons in the most enjoyable way possible, and this fascinating collection of dances from a French manuscript compiled around 1300 is no exception.

Each piece is given its own distinctive flavour with a scoring chosen from Hespèrion XXI's intriguing palette of instrumental colours, which include not only bowed and plucked strings, flutes and a panoply of percussion, but also dulcimer, hurdy-gurdy and a piquant pair of oboe-like chalemies.

Toe-tappingly compulsive rhythmic energy and exuberance, combined with improvisatory spontaneity, give the performances an appealing air of timelessness. --Elizabeth Roche, Daily Telegraph, 14 June 2008

Format: Audio CD
I was recommended this CD by a friend who shares my generally rock-pop-jazz-soul-funk taste in music. I suggested he try Shuggie Otis "Inspiration Information" and in return he suggested this record to me. I bought it in Amoeba Records but didnt even know which category to find it in.

With the help of the Amoeba staff I tracked it down to Classical - Cello, which I'm not convinced is the right category.

This is 13th century instrumental music. Played on old looking instruments (I am clearly no expert) and its very rhythmic.

I can hear Folk melodies, middle-eastern (post crusades?), scottish bagpipes, church music and even proto-JS Bach in the recordings. I thought it all a little samey on the first listen, but let it play in the background and have come to really enjoy it. Track 6 "Chanson d'apres" is the standout tune for me.

Overall - worth a listen if you are feeling adventurous.

Once again Jordi Savall and his musicians demonstrate a high level of skill in bringing to record unfamiliar repetoire, and the result is both enjoyable and instructional - altogether delightful.

Another Fine Savall Disc 27 Nov. 2012
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album contains all the instrumental music from a French medieval manuscript, as well as arrangements of some medieval chansons, all performed by Hesperion XXI under the direction of Jordi Savall. As those familiar with Savall's recordings would expect, all this is right up his alley, and the assembled forces deliver a measured, nicely textured and atmospheric musical journey. A reviewer of the non-SACD release of this album raked it over the coals for flagrant lack of authenticity with respect to arrangement and performance. I'm certainly in no position to judge those comments, but even if this represents an imagining of medieval music rather than the supposed real thing, it's still engaging and beautiful music, even as an historical imagining. There is a measured, introspective flow to the album and the ensemble is relatively small, so don't expect sonic fireworks because there are none. Expect instead something akin to Medieval chamber music. However you might characterize it, however, I deem it exquisite.

Great album I truly enjoy this and have listened to it several times while working. I have this in my collection of ancient music. Quite relaxing and fun to listen to. It seems that with every one of these type recordings, I'm making a good choice.

Just the kind of music to relax to, if you're not a history nazi. I like actual renditions, and interpretations, as well.
