Herb Reichert's 2018 "Stereophile Record to Die For"

"This perfectly recorded admixture of French Medieval, traditional Chinese and post-postmodern avant-garde music is surely one of producer-engineer Todd Garfinkle's finest releases, on both musical and sonic levels. The contrapuntal interplay of Chinese pipa (lute), organetto, medieval fiddle and percussion parlays contrasting tones, textures and unexpected shifts in harmony into marvelous musical moments without precedent or equal. When I listen to this unusual recording, I inhabit the musicians' space and feel I'm sitting in the room among them. This recording is, for now at least, the finest combination of music, art and sound I know of."


An MA Recordings special project juxtaposing Medieval French with Traditional Chinese Pipa music.

Christophe Deslignes: Organetto

PeiJu Lien: Pipa

Jean-Lou Descamps: Fiddle, Hardingfele (Norwegian Fiddle)

Thierry Gomar: Vibraphone + Percussion

Recorded at 5.6 MHz DSD in the church of Nevian, Southern France.

Microphones: DPA 4006 omnidirectional, completely rebuilt by Marcel Croese of Create Audio;

Cables: Black Cat Custom XLR cables by Chris Sommovigo;

Microphone amplifier by Marcel Croese

Recorder: KORG MR2000, modified by Marcel Croese


A unique collection of French Medieval and Chinese melodies, recorded in the Medieval (and only) church in the small village of Nevian in Southern France. The blend of Medieval Organetto, Chinese Pipa and Fiddle, supported by various percussion instruments is an aural experience impossible to describe. The uncanny juxtaposition of the two music cultures is something I invite you to experience. I'm pretty sure you'e never heard anything like it before.
