Recorded 20th-24th June 1994, Eremo di Ronzano, Bologne.
The critically-acclaimed ensemble Mala Punica came into the limelight by the mid-90s with three illustrious, multi-award winning discs on Arcana, which revolutionised the world of medieval music: Ars subtilis Ytaliaca, D’Amor ragionando and En attendant. Members included Jill Feldman, Kees Boeke and Giuseppe Maletto, some of the most respected names in early music repertoire. As implied by the title of the album, D’Amor ragionando (Discoursing on Love) is a collection of songs about love from 14th and 15th-century Italy and is centred around Francesco Landini, one of the foremost figures in medieval music. Long overdue for re-release, this milestone of the Arcana catalogue, Diapason d’or of the Year in 1995, returns with new artwork and new packaging.
