Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the second disc recorded by the nine strong group Tonus Peregrinus. It follows their wonderful recording of the ‘Missa Tournai’ which came out last year. This disc has proved to be even better. In fact it is one of the most intriguing discs of 12th/13th music issued for some time and at Naxos’s price well worth it... a fascinating and generous seventy minutes of listening...The CD booklet is a model of its kind. All tracks are clearly explained. There is a superb introductory explanation by an expert - no less than Antony Pitts who has also edited the music. All texts are given and translated. Illustrations of two of the manuscripts are reproduced. There is a photo and biographies are given for each of the performers...A Read more wonderful seventy minutes of the earliest polyphonic music known in Europe. Praise cannot be high enough for the entire project and team. One of my recordings of the year so far. You should go out and buy it instantly. - Gary Higginson, MusicWeb International Read less
