Album: Praetorius: Dances from Terpsichore, 1612, 1986. Philip Pickett - New London Consort - La Sarabande.

Philip Pickett and the New London Consort created a sensation in the early music world of the 1980s with this sublime recording of dances from Michael Praetorius' Terpsichore (1612); the album was so highly regarded, these exceptional performers eventually received praise in the online New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians for their "majestic rendering" of these quintessential Renaissance pieces. A colleague of David Munrow, Pickett was one of the leading figures in the movement for authentic performance practice, and his thorough study of German instruments from the time.

This 1985 disc of pieces from Terpsichore, by Philip Pickett, is well-played, if extreme in its dynamic range. I'm guessing Pickett wanted to demonstrate the variety of instruments this music was played on, but the price for the listener is periodically jumping out of his skin. This is okay in the car, but very jarring at home. The engineering is realistic. Pickett and the London Consort do an admirable job, although I've heard other performances that are a bit more lively. One person found this helpful.
