    Charming, simple and striking. Full of delightful surprises!

    Many early music groups these days explain cross-cultural musical influences in their program notes, and proceed to play their selections accordingly. Joel Cohen and the Boston Camerata take it the logical step further by actually performing the ¿root¿ pieces side by side with the later music that reflects their particular influence. The result is inspired, thought-provoking groupings of related tunes and texts that span not only centuries but continents. The Boston Camerata is primarily a vocal ensemble, with a sound that is spare, pure and direct. They perform some of their selections a cappella, while others are accompanied by light, period instrumentation. If you¿ve ever heard this group live in concert, you may recall the surreal effect of sitting in a theater that is pin-drop quiet, waiting for one or two musicians at a time to step forward and break the silence with a clarity and presence that holds the entire audience spellbound from first note to last. The effect of listening to this recording is much the same. My favorites on this release are the groupings of different versions of the same ballad--¿Three Ravens¿, ¿Gypsy Davy¿, and ¿Barbara Allen¿, for example. The pairing of the Appalacian song ¿Betty Anne¿ with its exact harmonic match--a 16th century ricercada for viols by Diego Ortiz--is also quite striking, and I also enjoyed the ¿shape-note¿ and ¿Fa-sol-la¿ singing-school selections representative of early American music. In the insert, director Joel Cohen explains: ¿This unorthodox recording, an intentionally provocative mix of early art song and modern folksong, is meant first of all to give pleasure - but it is also a meditation on history, on archetypes, and on the transmission of human culture.¿ The Boston Camerata succeeds admirably here on both counts!
