Courts of Love
09/01/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I chose this CD with absolutely no knowlege of the music of the time. I was looking for a CD to try out, one that I could listen to a couple of times just to see if I liked the style. As a fan of Eleanor of Aquitaine, I chose this CD because there are three songs by Bernart de Ventadorn, her protege. I was blown away when I listened to the CD - it's absolutely amazing! Mara Kiek has an incredible voice - I can enjoy modern talent while listening to the works of twelfth-century troubadours. The selections, especially "L'on qui dit q'amors est dolce chose" by anonymous and "S'ie-us quier conseil, bel' amig' Alamanda'" by Giraut de Bornelh are intensely beautiful. With the rich, sonorous music performed by Sinfonye, I can just close my eyes and imagine that I am in Eleanor of Aquitaine's court. I recommend this CD to anyone who wants some easy listening, romantic songs that have definitely withstood the test of time."
