What's New at GEMS...

grammyOnce again, GEMS has joined The Recording Academy, the organization that sponsors the annual Grammy® awards.  We do this so that early music ensembles who have independently produced outstanding recordings may submit them, through us, for consideration for one of these prestigious awards.  Any recording produced between October 1, 2011 and September 30, 2012 is eligible for consideration.  Nominations are being accepted during the month of August.

So far this year, we will be nominating Asteria’s 4th album, For the Love of Jaqueline, which tracks the highs and lows of a real medieval romance through the sumptuous music of Antoine Busnoys (1430-1492). The music was newly transcribed and arranged by Asteria directly from the Dijon chansonnier and recorded at the 14th-century Burgundian palace of Germolles.  The album is available for purchase through the GEMS online CD store.

If you know of other early music recordings of exceptional quality released within the timeframe noted above which should be nominated, please let us know!
