The predecessor of the modern brass quintet had its heyday in the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras, phasing out with the advent of the violin and wind instruments. This 1967 recording, performed on modern instruments, captures the spirit and style of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century performance without the use of period instruments, inviting listeners to explore the glory of Renaissance music in a familiar realm.
