Musica Ficta: A Child & A Well

Musica Ficta, literally, in Latin means a "false" or "contrived" music. But this music is not at all false or contrived; instead it transcends the original layer of composed music with some great added notes and themes. The band was formed in Jerusalem in 2003 by guitarist and composer Udi Horev, and includes, Julie Feldman, on vocals; Dvir Katz, on flute; Yury Tulchinsky, on keyboards; Avi Cohen Hillel, on bass guitar; Udi Horev, on guitars; and Michael Gorodinsky, on drums.

The song titles are written in English; however, Julie Feldman sings them in Hebrew. There are no lyrical translations available in the CD booklet. However, it is still interesting to hear songs sung in the language that provides the best interpretation and feel of the artists' narrative perspective.

There are no bad tracks on this album. All tracks are full of early Genesis and Renaissance era musicianship at the highest level. Feldman's vocals are a nice change of pace from the rest of the female singers in this genre.

The title track, "Man & Angel", "Little Town", "Run Free You Idiot", (nice title), and "A Fantasy" were my favorite tracks. If you love the style of music produced by early Genesis, with Peter Gabriel, any music from the 15th - 17th century classical instrumental eras, you will enjoy this album. A great modern interpretation of the classic themes of the past.
