Reviews

'Superbly recorded … very impressive indeed' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'lt should be no surprise that this is a real winner' (Fanfare, USA)
Ma fin est mon commencement (‘My end is my beginning’) is a rondeau whose text explains itself – a retrograde canon in words (almost) and music – as well as rehearsing the famous thoughts of Dante and St John. Or as the French lightly put it: ‘Plus ça change …’

from notes by Paul Hillier 1989
