-,  Harmonia Mundi "Century" HMX 290 8169 [CD] A History of Music, vol. 7: Du style gothique à la Pré-Renaissance / From gothic to Pre-Renaissance (1370-1460) - Ars Subtilior / Dawn of the Renaissance
This program consists of works connected to the Visconti court in Pavia. It is particularly well-suited as an introduction to the Ars Subtilior repertory for those who might otherwise be intimidated by it, as the program is not too dense and the interpretations are relatively straight-forward.
