Watkins Ale: Music of the English Renaissance
Jean d' Estree
Dorian Recordings, 1992
More than just an alcoholic drink
The Baltimore Consort are performers in the truest sense -- the energy and sheer brilliance they exude during performances is infectious and heady. Luckily for those of us who rarely or never get to see them perform, all of this comes across in their recordings. This CD makes both an excellent introduction for those uninitiated in the joy that is English Renaissance music, and an important ...

Sinners & Saints - The Ultimate Medieval and Renaissance Music Collection
A nice mixture
I bought this CD on a whim some years ago, and have adored it since. I'll have to confess that I know little of Medieval or Renaissance music, so I couldn't tell you if it is truely authentic or not, but the voices, tones and arrangements are amazing. The CD is a mixture of two earlier CDs (of whose names I can't recall), and has a combination of songs both spitited and relaxing, intrumental and ...
Panorama: Dances of the Renaissance
Deutsche Grammophon, 2001
have been searching for this for years
Happy to see the Collegium Terpsichore CD out again (disc 1), though hiding in this bargain set, wasn't immediately obvious. But one listen to the Praetorius samples and knew I found it. This album was played continuously on the air on KKHI when I was in college (circa late-hippie_, and I never tired of it. I wore out my LPs. Now I've misplaced that single CD so might have to buy it again if I ...
Renaissance Favorites for Guitar
Alonso de Mudarra
Luys de Narvaez
One of my very favorite albums!
David Russell's album of Renaissance lute pieces works beautifully on the modern classical guitar. He eschews contemporary Spanish guitar techniques like glissando, heavy vibrato, slurring, and portamento. David presents these pieces as they would sound played by a first rate lutenist. Mr. Russell's touch is light and graceful, and he invests a great deal of feeling in his exquisite phrasing, ...
Renaissance: Music for Inner Peace
Even my rap-hardened high school students repond positively to this recording. They want to know what the music is and how to get it. I love this recording. I'm not even sure how I came by it, but it is an important addition to my CD collection. I listen to it on "those" days when I feel like screaming and running. It has a magical effect on the entire classroom. It would also make ...
Instruments of the Middle Age and Renaissance
Virgin France, 2008
Know what you are listening to
If you enjoy listening to music of the middle ages and renaissance this recording will enhance your pleasure. After listening a few times you be able to recogzize the instruments being played. Munrow remains the expert. The vinyl, which I purchased years ago, came with a wonderful book which, unfortunately, the CD does not replicate. However, you don't absolutely need it to enjoy this CD and ...
English Renaissance Music
They don't come much better.
The incomparable Canadian Brass make this album a rare treat. From the first notes of Holborne's "Galliard" to the magnificent complexity of Byrd's "Fitzwilliam Suite", their renditions are sheer delight. The music is both relaxing and enjoyably stimulating. Repeated hearings allow the listener to discover some hidden turn or embellishment that was not noticed before, or to appreciate again ...
Chip Davis and London Symphony Orchestra
American Gramaphone, 1998
Six H. and M. Praetorius Pieces Make the CD
Six Praetorius pieces, Hieronymus and Michael, make this CD worth much more than the price: they bring beauy to the ears and heart, especially M. Praetorius's opening track "Volte" by the Pittsburg Symphony Brass. Others are equally beautiful and played by such artists and organizations as the London Symphony Strings, Asbury Brass Quintet, Chicago Chamber Musicians Brass Quintet, and the Musica ...
The Renaissance Album (Windham Hill)
Windham Hill Records, 1998
A lovely combination of old and new!
When I first saw this CD in the New Age rack of a local bookstore, I thought it had been mis-filed from the Classical section. Then I took a look at the combination of modern and early music performers listed in the credits and realized I had discovered something delightfully new. For centuries musicians have been drawing inspiration from Renaissance and medieval music, reinventing it to suit ...
Philip Jones Brass Ensemble Greatest Hits
Philip Jones Brass Ensemble
Welcome Back PJBE
It is ironic that London/Decca waited until many of the important members of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble were dead before finally releasing this collection of highlights from the ensemble's considerable catalog. Don't misunderstand me! I am thankful for this substantial 2 cd set. For fans of the PJBE there is real cause for celebration; and for those who are just discovering the work of this ...
Artistry of Christopher Parkening
Johann Sebastian Bach
EMI Classics, 1993
An Instant Classic in the Segovia Tradition
Christopher Parkening's work has always been nothing less than stellar. This particular collection of works is drawn from four previous releases (and also includes unreleased recordings), and is exemplary of his artistry and talent. The recordings are as crisp and clear as the day they were set down on tape. His expression and tone are without comparison. The selection of works on this ...
Italian Renaissance Dances
Giovanni Maria Trabaci
Giovanni Leonardo Dell'Arpa
Hmf Classical Exp., 2001
I have listened to this CD a great deal and I love it. I just want to answer vvic's point below: it's true that not all the tracks on this disc are rumbustious romps, but Renaissance dance had many different forms, genres and functions. It was an important means of personal expression and social interaction - you only need to think of the formal and ritualised minefield that surrounded love and ...
Beyond Chant: Mysteries Of The Renaissance
et al Anonymous (Composer)
Delos Records, 1994
Excellent introduction to Renaissance choral music.
This was my first CD of sacred Renaissance choral music, as it undoubtably has been for a great many people. It offers the best possible introduction to the genre for two main reasons: 1. No other CD of Renaissance choral music contains such a varied cross-section of early to late Renaissance sacred music styles. 2. The performance and recording quality are excellent. Keene uses a variety of ...
The Tallis Scholars - Renaissance Giants
Gimell UK, 2006
a voice teacher and early music fan
I LOVE YOU PETER PHILLIPS!!!!!!Quote by Phillips: "The Renaissance is well-known for its cultural giants. Leonardi di Vinci, Raphael, and above all Michelangelo epitomizes a period when the human spirit seemed to grow and gain confidence. This collection of complete works celebrates the musical geniuses who contributed to this astonishing period in European history." Included on this disc ...

Hyperion UK, 2005
A slice of heaven
We heard part of this CD performed live in Orange County recently. It was breathtakingly beautiful and were so appreciative of the opportunity to purchase this CD on Amazon.com
Renaissance Dance: Early Music Consort of London
Virgin France, 2008
Neusidler: Lute Music
Harmonia Mundi, 2008
Long Awaited Lute Music by Melchior Newsidler
The appearance in November 2009 of Paul O'Dette's CD of music by Melchior Neusidler is exciting news. And long awaited. For about 15 years! Neusidler was very prolific (well over 200 works survive), and before committing to a CD, O'Dette wanted to know the entire output intimately. How many take such a thorough approach to repertory building? And the CD benefits because he was able to select a ...
