Gramophone Magazine

June 2006

“…unquestionably an intriguing and highly original presentation of Adam's masterpiece. One has to accustom oneself to the fine medieval French narration coming in at one's left ear, and the modern English conversational version, giving the gist of it, entering at one's right ear. As the story unfolds, it is studded with gems of songs with stirring rhythms, some unaccompanied, other delicately accompanied by a selection of close on 20 early instruments. This is an enchanting entertainment, well worth the effort of trying to gather together all the various strands, and then to picture the complete drama in its original medieval context.”
