No Notes Found.
'Meunier's notes are lucid and informative, and this, his directional début, makes one look forward to other equally stylish projects. A great start.'
Gramophone

'The music on this recording is beautiful. Performances also live up to the standard one has come to expect of these fine musicians'
American Record Guide

'In this adventurous recording of a selection of the repertoire almost half of the pieces are recorded for the first time. Additionally, Robert Meunier and Guy Ross provide moments of contrast with a delightful, hand-picked string of gems for the lute.'
BBC Music Magazine

''the Italian diction is good (especially for stranieri!!!) the voices very well-balanced and the voice and lute songs really lively, an essential characteristic necessary for a good rendering of this special and lovely renaissance repertoire.'
Translated from Amadeus
