Early Music Consort of London, The – “Art of Courtly Love, The” – [Seraphim]

3-LP set from the 1970′s covers a fine selection of late Medieval secular music. Brilliantly played on period instruments, most tracks have vocals but some are only instrumental. Dissonant, odd harmonies to our 21st-century ears – this music links love to war, features “courtly” idealized love. Liner notes have lots of good background and academic information.

PGM: A sackbutt was an early trombone.
