This CD attempts to illustrate something of the diversity and splendor of the musical festivities which were celebrated in honor of Phillip the Fair of Burgundy's ceremonial visit to Spain in 1502. Both sacred and secular pieces are included, and the Orlando Consort acquit themselves fairly well in both genres, lending the Spanish and Italian songs, in particular, a lively, festive character. Though the back cover of the recording promises English, French, and German commentary, none (annoyingly) is in fact provided, although translations are given for most of the songs. This is probably the last Orlando Consort recording that will feature Charles Daniels as a primary artist.
Note (from Pierre-F. Roberge): the problem has been corrected; in my copy, commentaries are in English, French and German.
