Synopsis

Amazon.com
This disc makes a great introduction to Renaissance dance music for the uninitiated. The music is mostly Renaissance top pops, including some delightful dances from Praetorius's collection Terpsichore and even one by Henry VIII. Calliope, which gives very entertaining concerts, plays with spirit throughout, and the recording captures the individual sounds of the authentic instruments. This is also a good disc for people with short attention spans: not only are the individual pieces brief, but so is the entire disc (41:53). -- Leslie Gerber
