Notes and Editorial Reviews


The rose as symbol of both the beloved and of love itself: the ‘fleur des fleurs’ of the Roman de la Rose is paid due homage by The Orlando Consort in this latest instalment of their essential series.

-----

REVIEWS:

That evergreen theme of courtly love inspires in Machaut extraordinary harmonies and beautiful, primitive counterpoint. The singers combine pin-sharp tuning and gentle phrasing in this seductive collection.

– BBC Music Magazine

With their stylish singing of a programme inspired by the floral imagery contained in the influential 13th-century poem Le Roman de la rose, the Orlando Consort’s four unaccompanied male singers ensure that these 14 beautiful virelais, ballades, rondeaux and motets still speak with eloquence and passion.
