"...this is hardly one of the best CDs out there. Those who think so have obviously not listened widely enough. I suppose its popularity stems from its title, which gives it away as an easy introduction to the period. Multiple preferable CDs exist for each of the areas it surveys: medieval dance (Istanpitta I and II), Cantigas de Santa Maria (multiple releases under that title), Llibre Vermell (the Sarband release; The Black Madonna), Minnesang (Wanderers' Voices), and trouvere/troubadour repertoire (too many). The bottom line: nice intro, but unnecessary if you want to do more than graze the surface of available talent."
I listen to this one alot!

"At least twice a week lately in fact :-) I find myself fascinated with music of this era and I am very glad I got this album. If you like early music please give the clips a listen and I think you will agree this album is worth buying!The liner notes contain the lyrics in both the language sung and an english translation. This is handy for folks like me who only know english and want to know exactly what is being sung :-)"
