"It was a treat to finally hear these songs recorded by Martin. For a long time I have been wondering what they would sound like in the end, and now I have enjoyed they way he has treated the materiel we collected together during the late 1970s and early 1980s. I do hope these recordings find a lot of listeners that are interested in the period of the troubadours and onwards. I do promise that YOU are in for a treat when you listen to the excellent musicians that Martin surrounds himself with and also the clarity of his voice and the skill with which he explores this period in music history. So I do highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in this period of musical history."
Highly Recommended Ancient Music

"What a treat! French the way it was, before the Renaissance, before the Enlightenment, before everyone spoke like Maurice Chevalier. Best's love for Provençal is evident, and he infuses reverence and irreverence alike into these selections. Fine examples for any would-be Troubador. Good historical info and English lyrics in the liner notes. Provençal lyrics are the only things lacking."
