Ladyes Delight: Entertainment Music of Elizabethan England

( 1 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Murrday Fisher
Baltimore Consort is well-known for their skillful renditions of Renaissance music, and Ladyes Delight, their 1998 release, definitely continues that tradition. Here they perform the "broken consort," or mixed-ensemble secular music, for instruments such as bandora, cittern, viol, flute, and lute. The melodies are resplendent with the multiple layers and textures that the artists offer with much joyous enthusiasm, from the lucidly balladic "Yonder Comes a Courteous Knight" to the cheerfully lilting "Jumpe at My Cozen." This is another must-have album for Renaissance music collectors.

    Wonderful, light-hearted music by the Baltimore Consort!

    “The ‘exquisite consort’ of instrumentalists which entertained Queen Elizabeth upon her visit to the Earl of Hertford in September 1591 was, in respect to the specific instruments employed, the exact equivalent of the Baltimore Consort,” according to the insert booklet. “Combining the sultry viols, the ethereal flute, the ‘sprightly and cheerful’ cittern, the ‘deep’ bandora and the ‘noble’ lute, the ensemble is capable of many moods, from the joyful to the melancholy.” Quite true. The emphasis on this recording, which is subtitled “Entertainment Music of Elizabethan England”, is the joyful, as each musician in this talented sextet gets his or her turn to embellish both grandly and subtly on their parts. Unlike many of the Baltimore Consort’s other releases, this one focuses on part music specifically written for an ensemble such as theirs to play, like that found in Thomas Morley’s “First Book of Consort Lessons”, published in 1599, and a Matthew Holmes’ 16th century manuscript of broken consort music. The Baltimore Consort’s gentle yet lively sound will ease your tensions when you’re stressed, and perk you up when you’re tired. This CD is sure to delight “ladyes” and gentlemen alike.
