5.0 out of 5 stars English Fancy trio settecento 24 Nov. 2012
By E. S. Wilks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This new CD from Cedille, a U.S. company despite its French-sounding name, contains English instrumental music from composers extant during the late-Renaissance and early- to mid-Baroque periods. The excellent and detailed program notes point out that while all European nations developed musical genres with the name "fantasy," England alone adopted for a full century the Fantasy as its primary vehicle for instrumental chamber music. Sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English composers gave wing to their flights of fantasy with daring experiments in musical form, melody, harmony, counterpoint, decoration, instrumental techniques, gestures, colors, combinations, and even spiritual exploration. The CD begins with the famous "Sellinger's Rownde" by the Elizabethan composer William Byrd (1539-1645), who wrote Anglican church compositions but was, in private, a Catholic. He and fellow-composer Thomas Tallis, also a Catholic, were tolerated in a turbulent era during which most Papists were hounded for refusal to attend compulsory Anglican services. The rest of the CD contains Baroque music by the German-born violinist Thomas Baltzar, who visited England and dazzled all with his playing, and the English composers Thomas Hume, William Lawes, John Jenkins, Christopher Simpson, Matthew Locke, and - most famously - Henry Purcell, whom many claim to have been the finest English composer of his time. This was the era of Suites - collections of works for a variety of instruments, and this CD includes Suites by Lawes, Jenkins, Simpson, and Locke. Between 1680 and 1695, Purcell composed music for over 50 theatrical productions, and this CD includes excerpts from several of these. He combines his native melodic gift and mastery of classic English counterpoint with French overture and dance forms and Italian vocal styles. The immediate attractiveness, enduring freshness, and satisfying complexity of these works have never been surpassed in the history of English music.
The playing is exemplary and the recording quality is first-rate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A total delight 26 Feb. 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Trio play the music on instruments of the era, meaning that Ms. Pine had to forsake her usual Baroque violin for a replica of a Renaissance one, which turned out, as she admits, to be harder to master than she thought. She writes in a booklet note, "The neck and fingerboard are shorter, the bass bar and sound post are thinner, and all four strings are made of raw gut. Needless to say, the Renaissance violin has a special voice, easily distinguishable from its successors." That it does, and it is its "special voice" that helps make this album such a pleasure.
