'An enthralling disc, a wholly persuasive introduction both to this little-known repertoire and to how it should be performed' (BBC Music Magazine) 'Whatever else you may have, don't miss this' (Fanfare, USA)» More
Yo creo que n’os dió Dios cosa buena sino por darme pena. En vos muestra que os lo dió por vuestro merecimiento; y en mi pena, que os crió sólo por darme tormento. Bien pareçe en lo que siento, qu’Él lo ordena sólo por darme pena. Hazello por esto Él paréçese en una cosa, que, como os hizo crüel, os pudiera hazer piadosa. Mas hazeros tan hermosa y tan buena sólo fué por darme pena.
I believe that God did not give you any good thing, except to give me pain. In you He shows that He gave you good things according to your deserts; and in my pain He shows that he created you only to give me torment. Indeed, judging by what I feel, it seems that He ordains it so only to give me pain. His doing this for this reason might similarly mean that, just as He made you cruel, He might have made you show pity. But to make you so beautiful and so good was only to give me pain.
