Notes & Reviews:

Channel Classics is proud to present their first recording with the Holland Baroque Society. Formed in 2005, this group unites the youngest generation of baroque musicians, all veterans of European Baroque orchestras. The group combines innovative programming with a unique working style. The orchestra does not have a permanent conductor. For each new project, the group invites a different baroque music specialist to lead them and provide their own unique artistic vision. For this release, the Holland Baroque Society joins forces with Matthew Halls, renowned harpsichordist, organist and conductor and artistic director of The King's Consort in a disc featuring the music of Muffat.

Audiophile Audition
The HBS along with its 'guest' leader Matthew Hall turns in delightfully vivacious readings of great spirit and obvious devotion.

Gramophone Magazine
The full, rich sonority of the opening of Concerto IV, Dulce somnium, sets the tone, and the lively movements have a freshness and vitality that demonstrate the players' keen enthusiasm.
