Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A sublime recording of beautiful music from a much neglected period."

- Evening Standard, (April, 1998)

"Ars Subtilor (The more subtle art) is a collection of 16 pieces from the 14th century that show the development of music in the interregnum between Machaut and Dufay. Matteus de Perusio's Le Greygnour Bien (The Greatest Good) on track eight shows the developing features of the music: conflicting time signatures, complex syncopation and unusual subdivisions of the beat. Philip Pickett and his New London Consort, with Catherine Bott's vocal line, recreate the sound beautifully."

- Darlington Northern Echo, (April 1, 1998)
