Soulful string-playing on viols, fiddle, lute, guitar and theorbo by Tina Chancey, Grant Herreid and guest Jane Hershey provides the perfect accompaniment and counterpoint to Scott Reiss¿s amazing acrobatics on the recorder. Reiss¿s pitch, technique and tone-control of this temperamental instrument are impeccable, and he makes his intricate embellishments sound impossibly easy. (They are not!) The resulting pieces are light, spirited, and full of fun. Using the title imagery, if this music is ¿the food of love¿, I should think the food in question is chocolate, and the listener should prepare to be carried away on an ebullient caffeine/sugar high when this CD is popped into the machine. For more improvisational marvels for recorder and strings, try ¿Folie Douce: Renaissance Improvisations¿ by Ensemble Doulce Memoire, and the Palladian Ensemble¿s ¿Held by the Ears¿.Was this review helpful?
