Two CD set from David Munrow, the first disc being devoted mainly to Machaut, the second to Dufay and Binchois. 
I find "Vergine bella" of  Dufay performed by a countertenor (perhaps James Bowman) absolutely enchanting. But it is the tenor voice that puzzled me initially , it reminded me of Anton Dermota ( Dalla sua pace/la mia dipende :) ) with at times an exaggerated vibrato. A second listening had me put aside reserves and resentments .  Beautiful box.
