Interrelated traditions of keyboard and lute playing that flourished in German-speaking lands in the age immediately predating the invention of music printing have fascinated us ever since our very first encounter with the surviving repertoire that originated from these traditions. Fifteenth-century music for keyboard and plucked stringed instruments is without doubt an exciting area in the early history of European instrumental music, but one paradoxically seldom visited by performers and thus virtually unknown to the wider public. Many pieces are recorded here for the first time, and it is our hope that the present disc may contribute to restoring the remnants of a once flourishing and highly refined art to the place they deserve in the awareness of music lovers.

Seit dem Jahr 2000 leiten CORINA MARTI und MICHAL GONDKO gemeinsam La Morra, eines der führenden europäischen Ensembles für Musik des Spätmittelalters und der Frührenaissance ( und haben in kurzer Zeit dazu beigetragen, den guten Ruf des Ensembles für seine wohldurchdachten und lebendigen Programme sowie seine »virtuosen« und »reizvollen« Interpretationen (Diapason) zu begründen. Unter ihrer Leitung unternahm La Morra zahlreiche Konzertreisen durch Europa und spielte verschiedene begeistert aufgenommene CDs ein, u.a. Flour de Beaulté (Ramée RAM 0602).
