Notes & Reviews:

"We seldom hear Bach sung like this any more. The modern fashion is to skim nimbly and objectively across the notes, but Baker will have none of that. She really digs in, and her singing is full-throated and personal, the words filled with life and color. Her Handel is no less incisive, the coloratura precise and the long lines deftly spun outThe conductors used to be regarded as exemplary stylists, and their approach, though heavier than has become customary, remains richly satisfying."- American Record Guide
