Bought it last year. :)

Time to get a viol then  ;)

Honestly though, try this one if you are already playing the recorder  :)

I don't think titles in Alia Vox have gone OOP, just unavailable at Amazon.com. Right now, there is a discount on the label at MDT. :)

Excellent news.  hen these type of recordings dry up, they do not always get expensive, but they do get virtually impossible to locate a used one.

Off the top of my head, I also have these Savall consort discs--some of them were tougher to find than others (the Alia Vox are not that hard to come by)--all of them heartily recommended:

A "broken consort" will likely require viols, flutes and lutes.  ;)

A slight disappointment - considering the raving reviews, that is.
I think most of the enthusiasm for this disc has to do with the concept of bringing together music from the Tudor era by Jewish composers.
And there's the first thing I didn't expect: the term "Jewish Music" on the cover is somewhat misleading, because - and I'm quoting the liner notes now - "We should not expect exotic surprises from this Jewish court music, simply because the music [..] was the standard English court music of the day."
So, there you go: standard English court music by Jewish composers, that is quite nice but doesn't come near to the heights of music by composers like Locke, Lawes, Jenkins and Purcell.
The musically most interesting pieces are actually the three contemporary Jewish composer Orlando Gough. Interesting to hear contemporary music specifically composed for viols, and it is music of excellent quality too! :)
