A beautiful selection of Ricercares, Fantasias, Gagliardes and Madrigals from Renaissance Italy, played by a lute consort of 4 lutes.

In Italian renaissance, vocal and instrumental music were not strongly divided - the popular vocal madrigals of the day were often played by instrumental ensembles, in rich polyphonic writing of high complexity.

Presented here are works by well‐known composers (Palestrina, Da Milano) and some by more obscure composers - a lively alteration of bright and festive dances and melancholic, bitter sweet songs on subjects of Love, Life and Death.

Beautifully played by the Quartetto di Liuti da Milano, and a joy to listen to!
