A feast of little known music from the Court of Charles V
Paul L. McKaskle | Berkeley, California | 09/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 1557 Luis Venegas de Henestrosa composed a "book" of music using themes from other composers (Spanish and Flemish) for the Court of Charles V, the most powerful ruler in Europe. (He was not only King of Spain and Flanders but also the Holy Roman Emperor, with dominion over much of Central Europe.) The Harp Consort, lead by Andrew Lawrence-King has captured this music in a lavish performance on period instruments of Spain. The result is 70 minutes of sheer pleasure. My favorite is the 10 minute long "Diferencias sobre Conde Claros" -- a set of variations based on a famous Spanish medieval poem of love (discussed in Don Quixote) which had been set to music by Valderrabano."
Simply flawless
The Daily Prophet | Newbury Park, CA | 07/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A truly beautiful album you can put on and listen to any time. Perfect for inspiring background music as you paint or write or engage in a creative activity. The sound is simply flawless and the selections are seemlessly put together. I love this album!"
