A good recording but....,
This review is from: Music for a Medieval Banquet (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.
