    Sweet and sparkling!

    Frisky songs of love and springtime in the form of madrigals, ballads and jaunty dances. I can¿t help but smile when listening to the rich, cheerful, heartfelt music of the Toronto Consort. On this recording in particular, the recorder virtuosity of Allison Melville stands out as she imitates birds in several numbers with well-placed chirps and flutter-tonguing. Tenor Paul Jenkins also gets his chance to shine as an improvisational harpsichord soloist. This spirited ensemble continues their seasonal approach to recording with their subsequent release, ¿The Little Barley-Corne: Winter Revels from the Renaissance¿. For other fun madrigals from the Renaissance, you might also enjoy the King¿s Singers in ¿All At Once Well Met: English Madrigals¿, and ¿The King¿s Singers¿ Madrigal History Tour: Italy, England, France, Spain, Germany¿ (with the Consort of Musicke).
