    A delicately imaginative journey.

    Touching on elements of the Celtic, the Renaissance and the Baroque, these six women interweave them into sumptuous improvisations. Ensemble Galilei consists of Liz Knowles on fiddle, Deborah Nuse on bagpipes and fiddle, Sarah Weiner on oboe, recorders and whistle, Sue Richards on harp, Carolyn Ann Surrick on gamba, and Jan Hagiwara on percussion. Their sound ranges from musing to celebratory and airy to earthy, but is characterized always by the easy elegance of musicians who have mastered their instruments. The musicians have this to say about themselves: ¿We are committed to making music fiercely. We find music that speaks deeply to us, and we honor the traditions and dialects of each musical language¿ We find the place where our personal history intersects the melody, bass, harmony or chords. Revealed in these musical conversations are the essential parts of our own humanity.¿ This recording showcases feminine creativity in all its rousing and subtle beauty! Ensemble Galilei has two other recordings that I know of so far: ¿Come, Gentle Night: Music of Shakespeare¿s World¿ on the Telarc label, and ¿The Mystic and the Muse: Celebrating 600 Years of Women in Music¿ from Dorian.

    Excellent Portrayal of Isle and Court Music

    This album is one of Ensemble Galilei's absolute best. It really captures the meaning of the title: 'From the Isles to the Courts'. Indeed, one really does feel as though they are in Ireland doing a 'jig' or in Scotland doing a 'reel'; likewise, one also feels as though they are in a French or Spanish court in all its splendour and magnificence-in which music certainly would of played an important part. I would recommend this to all who appreciate the historical aspect, as well as the excellent quality of listening, in music-for this album signifys both.
