Format: Audio CD
I would have to agree with the other reviews of this recording a break down of the poetry involved in this would have been good as it is the cd is a set of poems but one wonders exactly what they are all singing about? The musical content however is very good but for those of you (like me) who enjoy hearing this early music played with a authentic (?) feel the whole thing is a little hollywood.... I must however say that for dramatic content the whole thing is second to none. A problem I often find when ordering early music is that often the actual instruments used do not appear on the info before you buy and I have brought the occasional CD to only find it is entirely vocal. A fact that is often left out. So folks let me tell you that this is mostly vocal with instruments. Worth a listen but will not please the devotte of this music.

This CD originally appeared in 1993 as 'Il Solazzo', based on the poetry collection of the same name by the 14th Century poet Prudenzani. Unfortunately like all the 'Classical Express' reissues from the USA branch of Harmonia Mundi (but unlike the 'Musique d'abord' and 'Suite' reissues from the parent company) this CD is text-less. Given that this is a song collection based on poetry this is a major problem. Two mid-price 'Suite' reissues by the same artists which do contain texts are 'Ay Amor' (Spanish music) and 'The Golden Dream' (Dutch music).

Really went down well alongside this recipe.
A little before our times, a Goose was wont to be brought to the table of the King of Arragon, that was roasted alive, as I have heard by old men of credit. And when I went to try it, my company were so hasty, that we ate him up before he was quite roasted. He was alive, and the upper part of him, on the outside, was excellent well roasted. The rule to do it is thus. Take a Duck, or a Goose, or some such lusty creature, but he Goose is best for this purpose. Pull all the Feathers from his body, leaving his head and his neck. Then make a fire round about him, not too narrow, lest the smoke choke him, or the fire should roast him too soon. Not too wide, lest he escape unroasted. Inside set everywhere little pots full of water, and put Salt and Meum to them. Let the Goose be smeared all over with Suet, and well Larded, that he may be the better meat, and roast the better. Put the fire about, but make not too much haste. When he begins to roast, he will walk about, and cannot get forth, for the fire stops him. When he is weary, he quenches his thirst by drinking the water, by cooling his heart, and the rest of his internal parts. The force of the Medicament loosens and cleans his belly, so that he grows empty. And when he his very hot, it roasts his inner parts. Continually moisten his head and heart with a Sponge. But when you see him run mad up and down, and to stumble (his heart then wants moisture), wherefore you take him away, and set him on the table to your guests, who will cry as you pull off his parts. And you shall eat him up before he is dead.

Dull slection of music with lacklustre peformances; if they played this at a Lord table they'd get food thrown at them.
