Dufay: Lament for Constantinople & other songs
The Orlando Consort

[ Hyperion / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 3 May 2019

One of the most immediately accessible of fifteenth-century composers, Dufay and his world are artfully summoned by The Orlando Consort. This is no mere musicological exercise, but a fullblooded realisation of a truly great songwriter.


"The Orlandos are so experienced in this repertory that, nearly always, the choice of tempo and tone is spot-on (and tempo is perhaps the most important decision, given that absolute tempos are never indicated), which maximises the music's communicative potential and more than compensates for the occasional vocal blemish." Gramophone Editor's Choice May 2019

"The four voices of the Orlando Consort give spaciously beguiling performances of a choice selection, ranging from the moving lament for the fall of Constantinople, O tres piteulx, to songs of love unrequited and otherwise, and to a final artful drinking song, Puisque vous estez campieur." Sunday Times
