A third collection of songs on the theme of courtly love by Guillaume de Machaut. Throughout this series, the members of the Orlando Consort are proving the most committed of guides to the music and mores of fourteenth-century France.


This is the Orlando Consortís third recording of unaccompanied songs by Guillaume de Machaut (c1300-77). The idealised pains and pleasures of courtly love are captured with haunting intensity, variously melismatic, rhythmically playful and full of conundrums and puzzles, sensed but hardly understood by a modern listener. Ö All sing exquisitely.  Fiona Maddocks
