timbre and the perfect tuning of her voice. No doubt her style is perfectly
suited for these Spanish Renaissance pieces, so often interpreted with later
Track 16, "Improvisation about Quand voie", deserves a separate paragraph. It is
not an old piece, but is based on a familiar melody in the repertoire of the
troubadours "Quand voie la flor nouvelle", anonymous. This is a recreation of
