Armada 4Planetworks. Sony MusicArmada 4. Sony MusicArmada 4ProLogic. The two principal types of music for viol consort were fantasias, or 'fantasies', and works based on a 'cantus firmus'. Some leading composers of consort music included William Byrd and the Italian-born Alfonson Ferrabosco. These, and many others are included on these two discs. And only 4 of the 6 are "new", so know that before you purchase this disc if you are buying it only to hear him. Of course, the 4 new songs are quite interesting and I probably would buy it at this price to get them in my collection.
The tunes that Chance sings are very attractive and he sings them with his usual expertise. This is a good representation of late 16th century music from the courts of England and Spain. Many other composers of that era existed, some of whom are featured on these two discs from Fretwork. Fretwork was first heard from in July,when the five members that made up the consort of viols, gave their Wigmore Hall Debut to great public and critical acclaim, and shortly afterwards were awarded an Arts Council grant to explore further areas of the vast repertory for viol consort.
Throughout their many performing years Fretwork has performed extensively with the countertenor, Michael Chance, the lutenist, Christopher Wilson and the harpsichordist, Paul Nicholson. Michael Chance sings only on this CD 1; he has 6 songs, 4 of which are new to me; the other 2 I have heard on other albums.
He sings them beautifully as always, and Fretwork is an experienced good-sounding group, so at the inexpensive price shown above, it's a real bargain.
CD 2 all Fretwork includes music by : Wm. Holborne and Wm. This album contains the work of a great many composers, mostly from Spain and England, spanning several genres and two musical periods.
For all that, the works complement one another extremely well, there are no jarring transitions, and nothing sticks out unpleasantly. The liner notes Broken - The Armada - The Armada (CD much to be desired, however.
Still, this 2-disc set is a bargain. Fretwork is a masterful ensemble and all of the pieces are skillfully performed. You won't be disappointed by this pleasant listen. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews.

Good value 2-disc set, authentic instruments, specialists playing them They could always cheer themselves up by going to the bear-baiting, or watching the beggars being flogged at the parish boundary, but surely Fretwork could vary the tone a bit.
Even that brisk, cheery, upbeat number, "The Fairie-Round", sounds world-weary here! One person found this helpful. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again.
Bought this years ago when it had a different cover but it eventually got scratched! Replaced it and nice to hear the tracks again in their unscratched mode! Translate review to English. You've read the Broken - The Armada - The Armada (CD international reviews.
And as DJs, both times I've seen them in the right venue, they've knocked it out of the park. Yes, they have some elements of "cheese" in their sound. But anyone who complains about Groove Armada being TOO cheesy likely doesn't have a girlfriend or wife.
Trust me, I know many people like this. As for their productions? Give me a break. Many of them are absolutely fantastic. Check 'Entrance to Zanzibar' or 'Lazy Moon' for some of the best moody electronica around. Or give their latest New Wave electronica a spin, like 'Paper Romance' and 'I Won't Kneel' for a band that always seems to capture the moment. Broken - The Armada - The Armada (CD find a lot of the artists or music fans who complain about this kind of commercially viable dance music are angst-ridden youths, adults still parochial in their tastes or, rather humorously, musicians unable to achieve the same balance: Make badass music that can live on the radio, Broken - The Armada - The Armada (CD, catch fire with a wider audience, get guys, and GIRLS to boogie, and still rock a big party to the break of dawn.
They got the name from a cheesy kitsch 70's disco club night in Newcastle. In one room Andy Broken - The Armada - The Armada (CD house and Tom played funk. The guys put out a few singles, remixes and even an indie album Northern Star - as well as DJing.
They also have a monthly residency at London's Fabric but it was the release of 's Vertigo album which brought them to the attention of the masses. Vertigo has now sold around themark and the boys are due to head off back to Ambleside in Cumbria where they do all their recording. Their star went through the roof when Madonna called them and asked them to submit a remix of Music - she's a fan too. Reply Notify me 3 Helpful. Favorite Artists by djbrians.
