The Most Subtle Music of All Time
Giordano Bruno | Wherever I am, I am. | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The composers of the Codex Chantilly called their music "ars subtilior" -- a more subtle art. They were right; no music has ever been more complex rhythmically, more experimental harmonically, or more nuanced in its poetic texts, which include the first song about "smoke intoxication" in the European canon. Very few performers have the technical command of this repertoire to make it enjoyable for a modern listener, but Ensemble Organum succeeds by way of tonal conviction and polyrhythmic precision. The Orlando Consort's "The Saracen and the Dove" is the only other CD I could recommend on a par with this one. Note the price; take a chance!"
