"The Studio der Frühen Musik's recording of troubadour songs included on these CDs was my introduction to their approach to medieval music, many years ago, and I have collected every recording of theirs that has appeared since. They are classics that have not been bested and they sound as fresh and "up-to-date" as they did when they appeared. They are definitely more adventurous and imaginative than most of the stodgy recordings of this repertoire that appear now. Thomas Binkley, Andrea von Ramm (there is no voice as versatile as hers), Richard Levitt (a "mellow" countertenor if ever there was one) and Sterling Jones make this music come alive with a passion and skill that has not been matched, except perhaps by Mala Punica, Ensemble P.A.N. and Ensemble Musica Nova for music of the later Middle Ages."- Amazon Reviewer
This music is from the 12th and 13th century. Studio der Fruhen Musik was one of the pioneering early music groups -- led by the American Thomas Binkley.Highly recommended, if only for their historic value.
