This comprehensive collection includes vernacular songs, lute songs, music for viols, organ, and more, performed by leading ensembles and instrumentalists like lutenist Nigel North, harpsichordist Glen Wilson, the Rose Consort of Viols, Oxford Camerata and Jeremy Summerly, Musica Ficta and Bo Holten, and many more.
Ensemble Leones’ 2015 recording Argentum et Aurum (8573346) won the Early Music category in the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA), with American Record Guide commenting ‘The program is so imaginative, so astutely played and sung, that one is loathe to raise even one complaint.’
In 2014 we released a 10-disc set entitled Saints and Sinners (8501067), a collection of works from the Medieval and Renaissance eras. The boxed set was praised by The New Recordings, which said that the ‘performances of both the ‘saintly’ music and the (mostly) renaissance ‘sinful’ dances and songs are top-notch.’
