Book Review: Weighty and Welcome Study of Baroque Tempo and Meter

There is so much information here concerning specific meters and their historical development that anyone who can digest it all will approach the music of the German Baroque with new understanding, conviction, and a sense of freedom.
CD Review: Baltic Tour is Stunning Achievement by Ensemble Peregrina

CD Review: Baltic Tour is Stunning Achievement by Ensemble Peregrina

The four-part series sinks deeply into the popular, vernacular, and religious music of medieval Baltic regions, exploring their individual roots and connections to local cultures and histories.
CD Review: Cut Circle Scores Anew in Anonymous Masses

CD Review: Cut Circle Scores Anew in Anonymous Masses

The singers all exhibit an amazing sense of control; in lesser hands, or lungs, these works would run out of steam halfway through, but the breath, tone, and phrasing are superb.
