CD Reviews

I don't get it. . .the singing is excellent!
William Atkerson | Missouri City, Texas USA | 06/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Other reviewers love the instrumental selections and berate the singing. Personally I find the purity of tone of the singer absolutely captivating. I do not hear any shrillness at all. The recorded sound seems ideal for this music, and all performers, singer and instrumentalists, are top notch, as is the selection of compositions on this CD. Highly recommended."
Awesome Renaissance Music

Gentle sounds such as these will always enjoy command over t
Mr Russell S. Wollman | Fairfield, Iowa United States | 07/08/2004

"The selections on this disc are quite nice, on par with "The Queen's Delight" disc also from the same artists. The tone of some selections is a bit more serious perhaps, but I wish to offer that Ellen Hargis' fine soprano voice lends great magic and power to the vocal selections. And though I am sensitive to harsh or annoying sound, that is not, I found, the case with her work here. The ear of the beholder is all-important, of course, and we all have our preferences.The graceful and elegant work of The King's Noyse will warm your heart, gladden your spirits, and engender your gratitude and curiosity for that unique period of time which gave rise to these ballads. Gentle sounds such as these will always enjoy command over time."
