A stunning debut release from Owain Phyfe & friends.
PJ. Garner | United States | 11/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With a voice like chocolate velvet and backed by some of the finest instrumentalists playing on period instruments, Owain Phyfe made the music of the Renaissance available to everyone with this magical debut recording. From the joys to the laments of this unique period in time, his clear vocals and seemingly easy style of delivery regardless the language make every track a joy. The arrangements and recording are marvelous, and I highly recommend this as a very fine addition to anyone's collection, or the perfect introduction to the sound of the true balladeer during the age of chivalry."
I don't speak French, so I'm crazy about this band

"With the choice of "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" as a cover picture, you begin to appreciate this group on several levels. The painting by Sir Frank Dicksee is a visual adaptation of a poem by John Keats. The musical adaptations of this very talented group are equally rich in color and texture. The traditional carol, "Drive The Cold Winter Away", has a freshness and vitality that carries over into all the other songs. Other songs are treated with equal verve and evident passion for early music. If you must limit your purchases of early music to only the very best, then this is certainly one group to collect."
