Another ravishing disc of songs from distinguished soloists Catherine King and Charles Daniels, both leading exponents of early music, and Charles Daniels, one of the world's foremost lutenists. Their last CD for Linn, Airs de Cour,was voted one of the best albums of 1999 by Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine.

A Renaissance Songbook is the world première recording of the complete madrigal book of 1536 Intavolatura de li madrigali di Verdelotto by Philippe Verdelot, the master songwriter of his day. It includes 4-part a cappella madrigals and a variety of solo songs with lute. The song texts, full of rich and suggestive imagery, feature a heady mix of ardent passion and unrequited love.
