The double disc is the greatest hits compilation of the Medieval and Renaissance music; the material on this Anthology are remasters from Ensemble's LPs Greatest Hits 3, Mon amy, Hommage а l'amour.


The first disc Hommage a l'amour is a collection of the European Medieval music, beginning with goliard tunes from the codices Carmina Burana and Cambridge Songs, trouvere and minnesanger songs, Spanish monophonic songs from the Cantigas de Santa Maria and polyphonic songs from the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, traveler's dances from the Balkan, England, France, and especially Italian Trecento dances from the famous London manuscript 29987. The second disc Mon amy is dedicated to the friendly atmosphere of the Renaissance music with works from the Cancionero de Palacio, dance collections by Tielman Susato, Claude Gervaise, Michael Praetorius, Italian renaissance madrigals and tunes, and also music of the Elizabethan epoch and Shakespeare's theatre, including John Dowland.
