A glimpse into the musical taste of the educated merchant class in fifteenth-century German cities is provided by song anthologies - Liederbücher - which are the focus of this program of the Ferrara Ensemble. Both the supereminence of German instrumentalists, famous throughout Europe since the fourteenth- century, and the birth of the polyphonic Tenorlied are themes of this recording, with its sound-picture blending the fading Age of Chivalry with the new spirit of Renaissance Humanism.
