Any thoughts about this? Little-played dutch gamba music from the latter half of the 17th century.

Noted - as you can see by looking through this thread, German baroque viol music is a bit off my radar, but one day no doubt.

Enjoying this right now, I am not really familiar with hume but it came under my radar just because it was a new release.

I know of Lief Henrikson through a recording of duos by St Colombe. This new one sounds interesting too.

This seems to lack a bit of the sense of fantasy which makes me interested in Hume’s music. It may be the selection, but I don’t think so. I’ll revisit it in a few days.

I don't normally like Philippe Pierlot's viol recordings, but I like this. It may be a question of the choice of music, it includes Tobias Hume, Froberger and Ste. Colombe, who I find particularly sympathetic. It may be an evolution of his approach to music making, he doesn't have that smoothness and luxuriousness which I find repellent in other recordings. It may just be that the sound take here is more me than the engineering of his other Flora CDs/

(There's some music on it which doesn't interest me right now -- Marais, Abel and Bach -- so I haven't heard what he makes of it.)

Anyway, a welcome new release.

The sound is most unusual. The instrument is lean. Very little sound engineering apparently, the venue was a church but it’s not at all over resonant. Like those MDG recordings I guess, you’ll either love the sound or you won’t. The performances are very good indeed I think, same for the music - this guy’s a poet.

The recording contains the only examples I know on a commercial recording of benjamin hely's viol music -- lovely simple music based on psalms I think. And Bartolotti's viol music, predictably more convoluted!
