Certainly. One of my favorite early composers. He is the one depicted on my avatar.

I suppose you think of

Le Ray au Soleyl Musique de la Cour de Visconti À la Fin du 14ème Siècle

and

Metamorfosi Trecento

both highly recommendable and very promising as to the Zacara CDs.

Meanwhile I would like to draw the attention to two other exclusively Zacara CDs. one from Currentes (on Lawo) and the other one from Micrologus (on their own label):

Yes, I like them very much and so far I like the ZdT very much too.

I have it, and have been dipping in occasionally yesterday. There's also a few ZdT tracks on Orlando Consort's The Saracen and Dove, and Mala Punica's Missa Cantilena.

Orlando Consort's The Saracen and Dove
What an amazing album it was! Same goes for rest of their 90s/00s output (Popes & Antipopes, The Call of the Phoenix, Medieval Christmas...).
Unfortunately, I can make through those latest Machaut recordings (and I have 5 of them). Their stubbornness in singing "iiiiii" for most of the lines is criminal and unfortunately Matthew, new countertenor is a major step back in comparison to Robert Jones.

This looks like an interesting new release


I can recommend this. Very nice mix of instrumental and purely vocal songs.

Yes, and even if these are symphatetic recordings, it wasn't until the Currentes recording I realized how special Zacara da Teramo is. Hopefully he will become recorded more in the future.

I think they get better at Machaut, I don’t have a great problem with Matthew Venner, I just feel that the original members are a bit past their sell by date now, Angus Smith and Donald Greig.

Maybe I’m particularly impressed by this year’s release, The Lion of Nobility.

Normally I’m not so interested in this type of instrumental music but I thought the tracks here were very agreeable.

BOY, I've not posted here in over 6 years and was most active a dozen years ago, likely when I was reading about and collecting this 'Early Music'!

BUT, I'm currently reading the book below on Music in the Renaissance (part of an excellent Norton series that I've been renting on my iPad) - currently on a section about Guillaume DuFay and his mass based on L'homme armé (The Armed Man), a popular secular song in the later Middle Ages (the tune and words at the bottom - see link for more).  Apparently, over three dozen masses were composed to the Ordinary of the Mass using this melody and variants - I probably own at least a half dozen or more, so decided to pull out a few for the morning's listening.  After building up a nice collection of this music, I've not been listening for a long while; must be corrected! - Dave :)

Dave, I think you should this recording - which is one of Van Nevel's very best:

Thanks Que for the recommendation - I have the Paul van Nevel Dufay recording inserted above (and shown yesterday) - Amazon USA has quite a few pages on Nevel and I did find a 'used' copy at the 'Declutter' MP seller out of Georgia (usually takes just several days to get to me in NC from them), so made an order ($8 including the shipping/handling).  Dave :)

Excellent!  :)  An very indispensable recording for anyone exploring the L'Homme Armé theme.

Hello folks  I am listening to William Cornysh live in Rome Tallis Scholars this is actually quite good but when it come to a composer I like them I get a bit bias but take for granted White, Fayrfax, Parsons, Browne, Lambe is equally splendid. Love English Polyphony Godz!!

What do you think of William Cornysh?

People should  the ensemble The Clerks for Cornysh too you might see what I see or ear what I heard see, the beauty of English polyphony of Tudors time hey?
