Italian songs and instrumental music
This is a beautiful record with music from an Italian manuscript kept in the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris (MS Vm7 676), with additional lute pieces from an Italian tablature known as the Manuscrit Thibault (also in Paris, MS Vmd 27) and ensemble dances (London, British Library, MS Roy. App. 59-62). On www.signumrecords.com you can find the very interesting programme notes and all the credits concerning this CD! Singing and playing are enjoyable, but for this repertoire I prefer Roberta Invernizzi, with the Accademia Strumentale Italiana, on Stradivarius STR 33396!
