Notes and Editorial Reviews

"If you're not sure who Tilman Riemenschneider (c.1460-1531) was, he is regarded as one of the leading Germany sculptors of the Late Gothic period. The music on this recording, played on copies of original instruments of the period, is largely taken from German song book collections of works current in the late 15th century... not only do you get the usual assortment of dances, tavern songs, a song about going off to war, religious songs of suffering and songs of love... you get original instruments, a few of which sound delightfully like tin pennywhistles, enthusiastic performers and excellent recorded sound. Riemenschneider would have been pleased." --Review by Laurence Vittes, Audiophile Audition, August 2005 "If you're not sure who Tilman Riemenschneider (c.1460-1531) was, he is regarded as one of the leading Germany sculptors of the Late Gothic period.
