Notes and Editorial Reviews

The ‘gentle physician’ (‘dous mire’) is Hope, invoked by Machaut as a consolation for the sufferings—and all-too occasional joys—of medieval courtly love, a world with which the ‘Orlandos’ are persuasively familiar.

-----

REVIEW:

As this recital progresses one is struck yet again with the sheer consistency of Machaut’s art. Despite recognizable phrases recurring from work to work, each piece has something to say. The Orlandos hit their stride in this series some time ago, and collectively they gel wonderfully.
