From the ensemble's website:
The Collegium Musicum is a small ensemble dedicated to the performance of Renaissance music. The ethos of the Collegium is to bring together a small group of enthusiasts working in an informal atmosphere to explore unjustly neglected repertory from the 'Golden Age' of polyphony. It works intensively on a small group of pieces each semester, presenting them in one or two concerts at the end of the semester.
The CD is on Direct-to-Tape and is # DTR2022.
