Synopsis

Product Description
A richly-textured blend of the music, poetry and dance tunes of 16th century France, with songs inspired by the eloquent grace and the passionate artifice of poets Clément Marot and Pierre de Ronsard. The songs include Mignarda's own arrangements of chansons and psalm settings with music by Sermisy, Janequin, Crecquillon, Lassus, and the inexplicably obscure Philip Van Wilder. The sparkling lute solos include dances from the publications of Attaignant, and exotic gems from Marco dal l'Aquila and 'il divino' Francesco da Milano. Recorded in the warm and vibrant acoustic of an old country church, this sixth release from Mignarda captures the spirit of these centuries-old pop tunes with grace and flair.
