Notes and Editorial Reviews
“Harry our King”, the new CD of the well-known German ensemble Capella de la Torre, is a fairytale-like interpretation of music from the court of King Henry VIII Tudor of England. King Henry was a well-educated and creative art lover, who played and composed music himself and gathered at his court artists and scholars from all over Europe. On this vibrant new recording songs and dances of Henry VIII and his contemporaries are made into a musical caleidoscope of courtial life with all its aspects of love, leisure and religiousness. Famous tenor Charles Daniels with his unique Old English pronounciation makes this music very much alive!
