Quinteto Armorial biography
QUINTETO ARMORIAL were a seventies group originally formed in Recife Brazil whose music interpreted pre-modern folk sounds and delivered them as original works in a romantic, chamber-like style. The band's sound was almost exclusively instrumental and featured traditional Brazilian instrumentation.

While the group disbanded in 1980 most of them remained active in the Brazilian music scene. Founding member Antônio José Madureira reformed a group dedicated to the Armorial style of music in the nineties under the name Quarteto Romançal.

Review by GKR

5 stars Ok. How to introduce this genre and convince that this album is a masterpiece?

We have to beggin withthe beginning:

In the early seventies, a brazilian writter, Ariano Suassuna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ariano_Suassuna) begun an artistic movement: Movimento Armorial. The proposal was, basically, link the northeastern brazilian popular culture, in all aspects, in a cultural movement of self valorization. The cordel literature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordel_literature), the xylography and the music of the popular "rabeca" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabeca) and fifes. What happened was, in this effort to bring the brazilian roots of popular culture to a solified movement, the musical expression must also be born. Then, several musical groups appear. Among them: QUINTETO ARMORIAL.

The interesting about ther music is that much of it came from europe. Obviously the music is not european anymore, but much of the chords and melodies date back from Portugal Medieval times. You should not be surprised when "Romance da Bela Infanta", remind you some moments of GENTLE GIANT. The title of the album already suggests this (because nothing is random, everything is picked up cautiously), "From romance to the northeastern scamper". Its the movement: from classic and medieval times, to our own cultural background and composition, re-thinking and re-composing music, figures and even the medieval imaginarium. "Repente" is a good reminder of this, "Toada e dobrada de cavalhada" even more. In tracks as "Bela Infanta" e "Excelência" not only the music is oriented in this concept as the title evoque medieval past. The high court in the brazilian "sertão".

I've tried to summarize everythin here, but this is not a easy effort. There are books and articles studying the movement and I probably will read them and came back here to improve this review.

For now, let the music alone speak.
