Capriccio Stravagante Renaissance Orchestra, Skip Sempe

Skip Sempe and the Capriccio Stravagante Renaissance Orchestra present Terpsichore, Muse of the Dance a recording of masterpieces of Renaissance dance music by Michael Praetorius and William Brade. One of the most prolific composers of the period, Praetorius collected and arranged more than three hundred dances for his anthology Terpsichore. This "bible" of Renaissance dance music contains music composed by Praetorius, French composers from the court of Henri IV and anonymous masters. William Brade was a great but unknown English contemporary of Praetorius. Brade's instrumental collections have been just as neglected as those of Praetorius have been celebrated.
