This is a journey through the music world of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It ends with those composers and those pieces of music that, around 1600, were shaping the sound that we call Baroque. Presented chronologically, this extensive collection of works covers sacred and secular music from Italy, France, Germany, Spain, England, Flanders, Portugal and The Netherlands, from a wide range of composers. Includes a comprehensive 76 page booklet charting the history and development of the music included in these specially chosen recordings. An ideal introduction and guide to this fascinating music.
