Allemande IV (Calude Gervaise, 1557)
Puisque vivre en servitude (Pierre Sandrin, 1550)

Le Monde de la Musique, may1995, Anne Piéjus

"The 1800 songs in the Attaingnant edition impart vital knowledge about musical life at the time of François I. These documents give only minimal information, however: the number of performers, the instrumentation, and particularly the ornamentation are left up to the performers, whose individual talents shine out in their embellishments. (...) This approach is perfectly demonstrated in the present recording."

Diapason, may 1995, Roger Tellart

"Doulce Mémoire's performance is a far cry from abstract games of pure music. The ensemble instinctively knows how to make these pieces charming and credible: their phrasing is spot-on, the words' meaning is conveyed, and the diminution and melodic ornamentation are brilliant. The result is a happy awakening of the listener's senses."
