Label: Glossa

Here is another crucial Glossa recording of the mid 90's brought back to life. Ensemble La Romanesca's Al Alva Venid covers some essential Spanish Renaissance repertory with an all-stars line-up, in a set of interpretations which have set deep marks and are absolute references: here is Marta Almajano in her best singing moment, here is Paolo Pandolfo confirming his superior artistry, here are Juan Carlos de Mulder and Pedro Estevan in ''de luxe'' supporting roles, and of course here is Jose miguel Moreno, the man who has probably been the finest translator of Renaissance secular Spanish music onto record of the last three decades.

…So for most of us, just listening to the lively, polished performances by male and female singers, accompanied by various period instruments will be enjoyment enough–but for the more curious, the extensive and very well written liner notes offer a fine introduction to the deeper meaning of the texts and provide important context for each song. Four instrumental selections round out this flawlessly recorded program, enhanced by the ambience of the Spanish monastery venue.

Armada. Music fron the courts of Philip II and Elizabeth I. Fretwork. Michael Chance, Counter-tenor

In the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the consort of viols was a common instrumental ensemble in England. The two forms that dominated English consort music were fantasias, a free flowing form, and works based on chant themes. While there were similar traditions in Spanish music, the Iberian style relied more on improvisation and consequently many of the Spanish tunes were never notated. This two-disc set by the English viol consort, Fretwork, explores music from the courts of Elizabeth I of England and Philip II of Spain. The second disc in the set explores the consort tradition in the late Tudor and early Stuart age.
English consort music reached its zenith during the reign of Elizabeth I, and probably no other composer of the English school of this era achieved such glorious results as William Byrd. Byrd is well represented on this recording by such marvelous tunes as 'The Carman's Whistle' and 'In Angel's Weed,' but the best of all is countertenor Michael Chance's singing of Byrd's glorious song "Rejoice unto the Lord."
The Spanish music is equally well performed by Fretwork and some guest artists. Harpsichordist Paul Nicholson is most impressive in a haunting work by Hernando de Cabezón called 'Dulce Memoria.'
