Notes and Editorial Reviews


One of the most immediately accessible of fifteenth-century composers, Dufay and his world are artfully summoned by The Orlando Consort. This is no mere musicological exercise, but a full-blooded realization of a truly great songwriter.

-----

REVIEWS:

The Orlandos are so experienced in this repertory that, nearly always, the choice of tempo and tone is spot-on (and tempo is perhaps the most important decision, given that absolute tempos are never indicated), which maximises the music’s communicative potential and more than compensates for the occasional vocal blemish.

This is the most rounded and saatisfying view of the composer to be had from a single anthology.
