This program features saxophone quartet or trio, and alternates very contemporary compositions explicitly for such an ensemble with the Ars Subtilior pieces by Senleches. The Senleches pieces are only about 10 minutes of the program, but feature some interesting sonorities on the saxophones.

The contemporary works offer some variety, and definitely have some enjoyable moments, even if they are very different in style from the medieval pieces for which this disc is listed here.
