Album Notes
About Cambiata

Pennsylvania 's Lehigh Valley has great artistic and creative diversity. Some 30 years ago, a talented young music professor named Larry Lipkis added to the cultural wealth of the region when he joined the music department faculty at Moravian College in Bethlehem , where he continues to teach. Larry is also a well-known composer and a member of the internationally acclaimed Baltimore Consort. In 1976, he formed an early music ensemble of students and local musicians: Moravian College Collegium Musicum. The group included such instruments as recorders, krumhorns, viola da gamba, and sackbutts. Through this group, Larry fed a growing appreciation for early music in the Lehigh Valley , an interest that nurtured the growth of Cambiata.

I highly reccommend this album as well as Nutmegs and Ginger, and anything Cambiata may produce in the future. This is a group of highly educated and highly talented musicians who perform early music in an authentic style. I love them because they are not overproduced, and stay tru to the style.
