"Orfeo: Fantasia" presents a variety of early music inspired by the Orpheus legend, and features both instrumental and vocal works by the likes of Caccini, Dowland and Monteverdi. The collection is a colorful tapestry of various musical textures: solo harpsichord, lute duets, music for broken consort, monodic airs, and early opera. Late Renaissance compositions blend with early Baroque works in a manner that blurs the distinction between the two eras. For example, the descending motif that begins the melody of Dowland's "Flow My Tears" is echoed in the ritornello from Monteverdi's "L'Orfeo." Charles Daniels' sonorous, resonant tenor is well suited to passionate interpretations of these emotive pieces. The instrumental performances are equally impressive. A particular favorite of mine is "La Rossignol," a lute duet that effectively blends the charm of the Renaissance with a mysterious Medieval quality. "Orfeo: Fantasia" should impress listeners whose familiarity with classical music doesn't run earlier than the high Baroque era. For the early music fan, this disc is a delight.
