Safford Cape conducts Dufay

Safford Cape and the Pro Musica Antiqua of Brussels recently appeared on this site on an Anthologie Sonore 78 of works by Dufay and Isaac. Cape and his group returned to the Dufay in 1950 – it was one of thirteen items on an LP of Dufay’s secular works which he recorded for Elaine Music Shop.

Side 1:

  • Resvelons-nous, amoureux
  • Pouray-je avoir vostre mercy
  • Hé! Compaignons
  • La belle se sied au pie de la tour
  • Adieu, m’amour
  • Ce moys de May

Side 2:

  • Je donne a tous les amoreux
  • Bon jour, bon mois
  • Par droit je puis bien complaindre et gemir
  • Ce jour de l’an
  • Mon cuer me fait tousdis penser
  • Je languis en piteux martire
  • J’atendray tant qu’il vous playra

This early LP is rather worn and noisy in places, but I’ve tried to remove the most obvious thumps and bumps.
