As its title suggests, this CD-book has something to delight every palate. It brings together some of the most truculent drinking songs ever to grace a Renaissance monarch’s table. A sumptuous buffet of Rabelaisian verse, seasoned with a wide variety of sauces prepared by the finest chefs of French polyphony – Claudin de Sermisy, Fréneau (a Fricassée!), Compère, Certon, Clemens non Papa and many others – and garnished with a delicious side-order of paintings and recipes by the great masters!
