Berlioz: Les Nuits D'ete / Ravel: Sheherazade / Debussy / Poulenc
4.0 out of 5 stars with 91 reviews
Here is a great French artist singing the songs of her native country in her native language, with the natural inflection and empathy of one to the manner born. Her voice is beautiful, pure throughout a huge range, focused, intense, infinitely nuanced; she can make it float ethereally or glow with a shimmering radiance, brighten and darken it and carry on two-way conversations. Identifying complete with each song, she communicates its mood, atmosphere, character, expression. She captures the

Josquin: Motets & Chansons
mpn: 724356130227, ean: 0724356130227,
4.9 out of 5 stars with 110 reviews
The Hilliard Ensemble bathes these vital vocal works by Josquin in a Mediterranean light: clear, warm, and brilliant. Josquin was a northerner who, like so many other composers of the Renaissance, descended to Italy to pursue his career. The singers bring to life the composer's marriage of the Flemish preoccupation with technique and the southern instinct toward lyricism. This is an extraordinary disc. --Joshua Cody.
Ockeghem: Missa Au Travail Suis / Missa de Plus en Plus / Binchois: Chanson- De Plus en Plus / Barbingant: Au Travail Suis
4.0 out of 5 stars with 229 reviews
The Tallis Scholars' exemplary contribution to the Ockeghem 500th anniversary commemoration in 1997 includes two four-voice Masses and the three-voice secular songs on which they are based. The first item on the disc, De plus en plus (written by Ockeghem's contemporary Binchois) gets a livelier performance than 14th-century chansons typically do; the Mass (which shares only a tenor melody with the chanson) is more subdued and gets an appropriately reverent reading. Au travail suis is one of

La Rocque 'n' Roll: Popular Music of Renaissance France
4.7 out of 5 stars with 228 reviews
The Baltimore Consort This title isn't just a joke. It makes the valid point that these Renaissance pieces occupied the same place in their culture as our pop music does in ours. People whistled these tunes in the street and danced to them at night, and you can easily accept the disc's title when hearing the Baltimore Consort's extremely lively performances, which have all the rhythmic drive and gusto of a good rock band. The ensemble's arrangements and the variety of its programming also
Au Pres de Vous: French chansons of the 16th century
4.0 out of 5 stars with 290 reviews
A richly-textured blend of the music, poetry and dance tunes of 16th century France, with songs inspired by the eloquent grace and the passionate artifice of poets Clément Marot and Pierre de Ronsard. The songs include Mignarda's own arrangements of chansons and psalm settings with music by Sermisy, Janequin, Crecquillon, Lassus, and the inexplicably obscure Philip Van Wilder. The sparkling lute solos include dances from the publications of Attaignant, and exotic gems from Marco dal l'Aquila
