One of the most immediately accessible of fifteenth-century composers, Dufay and his world are artfully summoned by The Orlando Consort. This is no mere musicological exercise, but a full-blooded realization of a truly great songwriter.


This isn’t the first recording of Dufay’s chansons to appear since the Medieval Ensemble of London’s complete survey nearly 40 years ago (L’Oiseau-Lyre, 12/81), but it’s the most rounded and satisfying view of him to be had from a single anthology... Like so many of the individual songs, the recital grows in stature with repeated listening. ... in singing of such insight there is so much to learn. And as to the music – did I mention it earlier? – Dufay is simply astonishing.  Fabrice Fitch
