Perla Barocca

11 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 105 Mb

Violinist Rachel Podger's Perla Barocca, which features works by ten key composers of the 17th Century, showcases eleven sublime examples of early Italian Baroque chamber music. Some of these composers dominated the repertory; others left behind only a handful of works. Here, they come together to convey the diverse musical landscape at an excitingly rich and creative point in history. Podger is supported by harpsichordist and organist Marcin Swiatkiewicz and Daniele Caminiti on theorbo.

Juifs et Trouvères

15 tracks - MP3 192 Kbps - RAR 128 Mb

This twelfth installment in the Collection Musical Heritage of the Jews of France is dedicated to the religious and festival songs of the Jewish communities living in Northern France in the second half of the 13th century. During this troubled time, spanning the burning of the Talmud through the great expulsion of 1306, Jews shared much of their daily life and language with the Christians, as well as a common taste in literature, monuments, the sounds of cities and fairs, their joie-de-vivre, and popular music.
