Gothic Voices
A Laurel for Landini

Sia laudato san Francesco
O sommo specchio
Creata fusti, o vergine Maria
Questa fanciull' Amor
Batista da Dio amato
Deh, dinmi tu
De sospirar sovente
Vaga fanciulla
Ave Maria, stella Diana
Ne la piu cara parte
Guarda una volta
Per Pallegrezza del nostro Signore
Cosi penoso
Donna, perche mi spregi
Musica son/ Gia furon/ Ciascun Vuol
Peccatrice nominata
Conviens' a fede
Lasso! di donna
Mein herz das ist versert
Ne la mia vita
Muort' oramai
Che pena e quest' al cor
Piu bella donn' al mondo
Questa fanciull' Amor
Vergine donzella imperadrice
Questa fanciull' Amor

The award winning and worldwide famous vocal ensemble Gothic Voices travel to Italy and the origins of its impressive polyphonic music: A Laurel for Landini - 14th Century Italy's Greatest Composer. This disc presents the group performing music by the Italian composer Francesco Landini, one of the most prominent and influential composers of that time and one of the most important for the development of later forms of close harmonic chanting - the forerunner of the famous Madrigal that would flourish later in the 16th century. This disc not only sets out the panorama of the time and the genius of Landini himself but also works by his contemporaries. Here Gothic Voices collaborate with the worldwide acclaimed harpist Andrew Lawrence-King. This is an important release that will appeal to those interested in singing and early choral music to discover a whole new set and experiments from a composer that helped create the choral forms that later revolutionized the whole of western music.
