Overview

With the compilation Time of the Templars, Naxos continues its practice of repackaging material from its catalog in thematic collections that should have broad appeal. The Order of the Knights Templar flourished in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, and this collection features music that would have been part of the culture of the time, even though some of it was written much earlier. The first volume of this three-CD set, Music for a knight, consists of a widely varied assortment of pieces, some sacred, some secular, some instrumental, and some vocal, including trouvère and troubadour songs, Cantigas de Santa Maria, dances, and works by Hildegard and Perotin taken from about a dozen previous releases by ensembles such as Tonus Peregrinus, Oxford Camerata, Ensemble Unicorn, and Ensemble Accentus. The diversity of material and performing forces makes this an especially attractive disc, and the performances are outstanding, lively, and polished. The second volume, Music of the church, is a reissue of a single CD, Adorate Deum: Gregorian Chant from the proper of the mass, performed by Nova Schola Gregoriana, an all-male ensemble led by Alberto Turco. This CD is notable for its homogeneity; all the chants are monophonic and the performances are quiet and low-key. This would definitely work as lulling background music or as an aid to relaxation or meditation. The third volume, Music of the Mediterranean, provides a fascinating combination of Eastern and Western music of the period, including an astonishing setting of the Kyrie Eleison that sounds like it came from a mosque rather than a church. As in the first volume, the selections come from a variety of previous releases, with the Ensemble Oni Wytars prominently featured. The sound is consistently good for all the selections. The collection should be of interest to early music fans and is especially useful in that it points listeners to the CDs from which the selections are taken.
