Another Glossa recording from the mid 1990s, Ensemble La Romanesca’s Al alva venid covers some essential Spanish Renaissance repertoire with an all-star line-up, and which became a benchmark recording. Here is Marta Almajano at her best; Paolo Pandolfo confirming his superior artistry; Juan Carlos de Mulder and Pedro Estevan in deluxe supporting roles; and of course José Miguel Moreno, possibly the finest proponent of Renaissance secular Spanish music in the last 30 years.

"this CD will take pride of place among my recordings of this repertory. The group perform with true fantasia but without any of the mannerisms – the excesses and the understatements – of many of their predecessors and rivals: they seem to hit it just right... The players, led by Jose Miguel Moreno, are brilliant, and the singer, the soprano Marta Almajano, shines as much in this repertory as she does in the baroque music she has recorded with both this group and Al Ayre Espanol... take it with you wherever you go, and especially to that desert island." - Tess Knighton, Gramophone
