Quartetto di Liuti da Milano

A beautiful selection of Ricercares, Fantasias, Gagliardes and Madrigals from Renaissance Italy, played by a lute consort of 4 lutes.

In Italian renaissance vocal and instrumental music were not strongly devided: the popular vocal madrigals of the day were often played by instrumental ensembles, in rich polyphonic writing of high complexity.

Presented are works by well‐known composers (Palestrina, Da Milano) and some by more obscure composers, a lively alteration of bright and festive dances and melancholic, bitter sweet songs on subjects of Love, Life and Death.

Beautifully played by the Quartetto di Liuti da Milano, a joy to listen to!

An extensive booklet text in English and Italian, on the historical background of the music, the instruments used and biographies of the artists.

Fires of Love

Amid religious strife and social turmoil, the 16th century also saw France emerge as a humanist culture with a unique musical voice.This world of contrasts provided the perfect setting for Adrian Le Roy to flourish as a

composer, performer, and publisher. Scottish ensemble Fires of Love vividly recreate the many facets of his musical world, from vivacious dances to songs of utmost sorrow.

“Frances Cooper whose vocal contribution is quite delicious . Lovely performances, beautiful songs” MusicWeb International

“songs and instrumental dances performed with a refined temperament well suited to the languid style of the period” The Scotsman
