Joie de Vitry!Aug. 9 2013
- Published on Amazon.com
This is a stunningly pretty collection. The pieces lack the intensity of the religious/spiritually inspired pieces. These are for the most part secular, and range from lively little airs, with a jaunty, spring like feel, like a French version of Sumer is a cumin in - to full bodied plaints which sound like an ardent swain pleading for his lady's favours - a wooing song, a love song, no less, and pieces which just seemed designed to show off the composer, lyricist and singers' artistry, in `oh how did they do THAT' sort of way, for the listener, and leave us applauding their skills and the pleasure this music brings. Its possible (not having the texts on an mp3 download) that some of these are songs of praise, but if they are, it is to a divinity who a friend, not to a being who is full of awe and majesty. More of a lares and penares sort of providence.
