Piffaro discs make this sedentary fool want to get up and dance. Renaissance dance music is a much-underrated source of general delight, anyway. You don't have to be the kind of specialist listener who loves medieval masses to get a kick out of this tasty, highly rhythmic music--the disco of an earlier era. The tunes are appealing, the sounds of the varied instruments consistently delightful. I rate discs of Renaissance dances not so much by their authenticity, a debatable matter anyway, but rather by their danceability. Piffaro discs rank consistently high in this respect, and they are realistically recorded. --Leslie Gerber

Piffaro uses "ancient" instruments, including a French bagpipe (smaller than the Scottish), sacbuts, and the hurdy-gurdy.
This is an upbeat collection of early music, much more fun than some (although I also enjoy more somber early music collections as well). It's very accessible for listeners unfamiliar with the period. The songs are delightful enough that I can picture children at play with this CD as background music.
