J’écoute Marguerite fleur de valeur (Binchois) tout en tapant ce message-ci. Autrefois le baryton ne m’a pas plu, mais cette fois ci je l’aime bien - j’ai un nouvel amplificateur, peut-être c’est pour ça que je l’aime. C’est surtout le charme du style d’antan.

Oooo - maintenant c’est une chanson de Hayne van Gizeghem, c’est beau ça! Mon souvenir.


De toute façon, je suis heureux qu’on me rappelle ces enregistrements, je vous en prie.

Bien à vous.

Inspired by this thread, I’ve been enjoying returning to this



And I’ve been reflecting on the sad lack of recordings of songs by Busnois.

It’s a great shame that Schmelzer didn’t do Binchois’s Deuil Angoisseux. There’s a stunning modern performance here for voice and instruments.



Gothic Voices did it a cappella on The castle of Fair Welcome.  I’m not sure how successful an experiment it is, but certainly worth hearing.

This was released in June I think, it’s worth a listen
