This CD pairs the Collegium Terpsichore's famous 1960 recordings of music by Praetorius, Widmann, and Schein with other Renaissance dances of more recent recorded vintage. It's a good choice for anybody seeking to replace a copy of DG Archiv LP 73153. The sound quality of the 1960 performances is similar to that on the LP, which already sounded great, although the recorded level on the CD is higher than on the LP (or so an A-B comparison suggested). There is one thing to look out for with this CD, however. Initially it confused the heck out of me. For some reason, the printed content listing attributes the six Dances from Terpsichore, by Michael Praetorius (Entrée-Courante; Gavotte; Spagnoletta; La Bourée; Ballet; Volte), to that well-known composer named "Anonymous"! I know there have been huge advances in musical research since 73153 was issued in the early 1960s, but I suspect that Praetorius's authorship of the six dances in question is well settled.
