O qual meco, o Nice
Se fedele tu m'adori
Dir vorrei
Che vidi oh' Ciel, che vidi
Pur nel sonno almen tal'ora
Piangete occhi dolenti
Tinte a note di sangue
Scritte con falso inganno

Edison Award

"A stunning record. I have never heard better" (Gramophone)

When we participated in the competition at the Musica Antiqua Festival in Bruges, we made it to the finals. No one was more surprised than we were. We believed that a recorder quartet couldn’t limit itself to music of the 16th and 17th centuries, and that led us to include a pop song on the program. We performed it at the end of the program. under the pseudonym “When shall my sorrowful sunshine slack”. It was against all the rules, but the resulting ruckus and the unexpected prize that we won were the beginning of a lot more. We performed with Christopher Hogwood in Wigmore Hall, we got a recording contract, and our debut album, “Virtuoso Recorder Music” was a tremendous hit.

Clement Janequin - Le Chant des Oyseaulx

"In the 16th century birdsong certainly constituted an essential aspect of that broad stream of natural imitations which runs through the musical aesthetics of the Humanist Age: Human or Artificial Music hearkened to Natural Music in an effort to copy it and thereby to raise itself to the summits of Parnassus. [...] Janequin never lost his taste for bird-song, from the first attempts of 1520 down to the last chansons of the 1550s. It is at the very core of his creative activity, at the heart of that poetic-musical game, the polyphonic chanson."
(J.-P. Ouvrard)

This recording has never left the harmonia mundi catalogue in nearly thirty years, and is still regarded as a benchmark!

Booklet (PDF) from HM

A unique musical document!
Whereas proofs of the greatness of Ancient Greek architecture and literature still exist in abundance, no more than a few scraps of their music have miraculously survived. They have been gathered together here for the first time in a partly ‘archaeological’, partly imaginary panorama of this music that was, after all, an integral part of daily life in Ancient Greek.

Considerably more remains of ancient Greek architecture than the music of this advanced and inspirational civilization. And although works explaining Greek music theory have survived, the actual existence of composed pieces from these times comes down to only a few scraps that survived on papyrus, marble columns, and other written sources. This Spanish ensemble under the leadership of Gregorio Paniagua pieced together these remains and performed them with reconstructions of instruments from ancient Greek sources, some of which, such as the bagpipe, remain in use today. Portions of the music included may remind listeners of very early classical music such as Gregorian chant, whereas other pieces will certainly cause an astonished reaction as they sound unlike any other music recorded. Some is sparse, floating, the melodic ideas developing very slowly. A few of the old-world Greek percussion instruments wind up sounding quite a bit like new-world electronic music.
