Reviews

'Fine playing and crystal-clear recording throughout' (Gramophone)

'Committed, highly intelligent and impeccably controlled performances which breathe the rarefied air of French Baroque style' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Very highly recommended' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Wholly enjoyable … This makes for interesting, varied listening, and turns up some real gems that might otherwise have been passed over. Far from being a curiosity, then, this CD is a fascinating document of 17th century musical practice, and most enjoyable in its own right.' (Gramophone Early Music)

'An elegant, insightful premiere recording of a recently published manuscript [on] two marvellous instruments, superbly recorded' (Classic CD)

'80 minutes of exceptional music.' (Goldberg)
