Musical colleagues for many years, Margaret Little and Sylvain Bergeron share their passion for early music with a new recording, Doulce Memoire. Both have crisscrossed the five continents as soloists or chamber players. They have won praise for their musical sensitivity and virtuosity, and for their ability to communicate with their audiences.
This CD takes its title from that of one of the most celebrated madrigals of the 16th century, Doulce Mémoire by Pierre Sandrin. The important Renaissance art of improvisation is on display on this recording, which includes works by Diego Ortiz, Giovanni Bassano, and music from The division Violin published by John Playford.
