"As led by its Artistic Director, David Fallis, The Toronto Consort lavishes luminous clarity, lightness and vitality on the music." - Gramophone Magazine

"Toronto should count its blessings that it has an ensemble like the Consort to expose it to the masterpieces of Early Music. From soloists to musicians to conductor David Fallis, this was early music-making at its very best." — The Toronto Star

This 2-CD set is a re-issue of two of the Toronto Consort's most popular recordings of Renaissance music: Mariners and Milkmaids: Ballads and Dances from 17th-Century England, and O Lusty May: Renaissance Songs of Spring.
