About

Sinfonye, one of the ground-breaking ensembles of Medieval music performance of the 1990ís, under the direction of Stevie Wishart, had a huge hit with this album, previously titled Red Iris, in 1996. This Istampite recording teams two percussionists, Jim Denley and Pedro Estevan, in support her deeply-informed fiddle and hurdy-gurdy renderings of 14th-century Florentine repertoire.

"What is new is the way Stevie Wishart plays them... they are done extremely well, with Jim Denley and Pedro Estevan producing a stunning range of sounds from their various percussion instruments... This kind of approach seems extremely productive: it stresses the sheer quality and inventiveness of the melodies... it says much for the power of Stevie Wishartís playing that she keeps the music constantly interesting (one of the pieces lasts over ten minutes) and is invariably persuasive... this is a superbly convincing performance, recorded with a nice full sound and giving relatively familiar music an added intellectual depth." - Gramophone
