Out of print, not reissued on CD.
This landmark recording signals Martin's deepening resolve to devote himself to the music of the early troubadours. His efforts in his early work to demonstrate that a bridge - spiritual and temperamental - links the troubadours of Provence with other musicians up to and into the 20th century, perhaps met with only partial success. But in the attempt, he created some of the most remarkable recordings of his time.
