Chansons à plaisir: music from the time of Adrian Le Roy

Amid religious strife and social turmoil, the sixteenth century also saw France emerge as a humanist culture with a unique musical voice. This world of contrasts provided the perfect setting for Adrian Le Roy to flourish as a composer, performer and publisher. Scottish ensemble Fires of Love vividly recreate the many facets of his musical world, from vivacious dances to songs of utmost sorrow.


"songs and instrumental dances performed with a refined temperament well suited to the languid style of the period"
