about this recording:

The reign of Elizabeth I was considered England’s golden age already during the Queen’s lifetime, and not just because of her great political successes. Culturally, the kingdom experienced an extraordinary blossoming. To the present day, the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries are considered pinnacles of world literature. And also the musicians who worked in the sphere of the court of London succeeded in creating for the island state a fascinating idiosyncratic musical language.

In its concerts, B-Five pursues the goal of offering its audience the marvelous English consort music of the sixteenth century in all its fascinating beauty, emotionality, and power. In doing so, the ensemble relies not just on intensive studies of historical performance practice, but combines it with an animated and spontaneous manner of music-making.
