I love this cd! Its soft but upbeat, just the right music for washing dishes at night.
My favorite track is "Drive the cold winter away", an old English tune describing the change of seasons. You can almost feeling the crackling fire on your skin as the flutes play in the background.
The most interesting tune, to me, is "Pastime With Good Company," written by Henry VIII of England. Yes, the one of six wives fame. You can see the future tyrant in the words, saying in essence, all I want to do is be entertained, no one will will get in my way.
Educational and easy on the ears, what could be better than that?
A Great Introduction Into Renaissance Music

This is a great introduction to Renaissance music. The tracks alternate between upbeat and slower songs, and some of them are in Italian or French (really like that!). I love singing along with most of the tracks. A thoroughly enjoyable CD!
