L'avant-garde de Jean Duc de Berry
Ferrara Ensemble - Crawford Young
Arcana 355

This latest recorded by the Ferrara Ensemble shows developments in their style of performing this music, traceable over more than 15 years. Although parts of this program were recorded far prior to its release, they still show an excellent command of the music. Lines are clearly articulated; there is good overall pacing & flow, etc. This is simply a very enjoyable performance.

Regarding the particular items recorded, there is some mix of novel and well-known songs from the period. The program cannot be said to be "special" in any way, but it is of good merit.

To medieval secular list
