Hundreds of years after the fact, The Renaissance continues to capture our imaginations and inform so many artististic expressions in our popular culture. This collection brings us back to that time in fresh contemporary fashion, giving life to the past while reminding us that from generation to generation, age to age, wonderful music, like its sister art forms, lasts forever.

    A lovely combination of old and new!

    When I first saw this CD in the New Age rack of a local bookstore, I thought it had been mis-filed from the Classical section. Then I took a look at the combination of modern and early music performers listed in the credits and realized I had discovered something delightfully new. For centuries musicians have been drawing inspiration from Renaissance and medieval music, reinventing it to suit their own eras. And today, even ensembles seeking to authentically recreate early music choose to stretch their boundaries as well, exercising their own creativity and appealing to modern sensibilities. So why not combine the two on one recording? Windham Hill’s “Renaissance Album” brings together “straight” early music offerings from esteemed groups like Piffaro and the Baltimore Consort with whimsically inventive modern interpretations from New Age artists like the Angels of Venice, Lisa Lynne, Liz Story and David and Diane Arkenstone. The selections fit quite well together, weaving a tapestry across the centuries that is quaint, courtly, delicate and at times lively and even humorous. Lovers of both ends of the spectrum will find something to enjoy here, and will have a chance to discover a variety of artists whose work they may wish to explore further. If you enjoy Windham Hill’s “Rennaissance Album”, you may also like another of their compilation albums, “Celtic Christmas 3”; not necessarily either Christmassy or Celtic in tone, it nonetheless features some of the same artists as “The Renaissance Album”, and in some ways sets a similar tone.
