The Queen's Delight: 17th Century English Ballads & Dances
4.2 out of 5 stars with 22 reviews
This attractive package comes with the sort of lustrous and vivid cover art reproductions Harmonia Mundi is known for, as well as a 69-page book of notes in four languages, complete with real binding.

They have also tried to re-create the practice of improvised harmonization of the chant: the effect (as heard here, at least) is sonorous and a bit wild--something like plainchant in sacred harp style.
Gregorian Chant & Polyphony
4.6 out of 5 stars with 116 reviews

Somehow, these often very beautiful and intricate melodies work their own magic anyway, irrespective of occasion or religious
