A review of Courante that was published in the March, 2015 edition of the magazine Early Music Today
Edward Martin and Thomas Walker have brought together seventeen magnificent duets in this program, gathered from books and manuscripts from all over Europe. In addition to this unique collection of historical pieces they have also brought two new pieces to the repertoire by commissioning Tyler Kaiser to compose new counterparts for well-known historical pieces.
The recording is available on CD in a digipack format with a booklet which contains not only the details of the program, but also extensive notes written by Benjamin Narvey.
