Notes and Editorial Reviews

'These delightful performances will come as a refreshing change that blows away decades of excess. The slightly husky sound of The Parley's Renaissance violins suits this music to perfection, while the catchy rhythms of the dances are inflected with an irresistible verve, buoyancy and character ... Irresistible stuff' (Goldberg) 'A new look at a famous score, and for this reason as well as for the excellent performances, warmly welcomed' (Gramophone) 'Peter Holman and his band reveal this music's rich diversity in an intelligent and pleasing anthology. Taut rhythms and fine dynamic control throughout carry the listener along most persuasively ... A collection of earthier English courantes and a group of festive ballets bring this highly Read more entertaining programme to a brilliant conclusion' (BBC Music Magazine) 'The early-music disc with the highest feel-good factor' (Fanfare, USA) 'This ... must be regarded as the most authentic and comprehensive now available' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs) Read less
