Absolutely gorgeous performances

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The ensemble, unfortunately named "Circa 1500" to the befuddlement of CD shop employees who manage the dividing cards in CD bins, was as fine a Renaissance instrumental ensemble as could be found in the 1990s. The group offers spirited, bouncy renditions of these songs, which remain catchy four centuries after composition. The soprano starring in most of these tracks is Emily Van Evera, whose voice is as near to an angel's as I have ever heard. I eschew encomia, but this must be what heaven sounds like. Her singing is sheerly, absolutely ravishing. This collection will cudgel your sensibilities with beauty, no quarter given."
