Description

Bara Faustus Dreame on CD

Freddy Eichelberger writes of this release: "The idea for this recording came to us after reading Anne Cuneo's novel Le Trajet d'une riviere, in which the charming, valiant, chivalrous and Catholic Francis Tregian travels the length and breadth of Europe sword in hand, regarded as a spy by some, a messenger by others. He meets the greatest musicians of his time and copies out their music. Taking the three 'compilations' by Tregian that have come down to us, one of which is the famous Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, we find ourselves faced with hundreds of vocal and instrumental pieces, fantasies, madrigals and other pieces. In attempting to revive in part the musical world of Sir Francis Tregian, our aim was to explore the elements of dream and travel through time and space. The five Witches were joined by five guest Witches: two voices for the music of words, two viols enabling us to form a homogeneous consort, and the bandora which enabled us to achieve one of our aims- to recreate a genuine English broken consort."
