Notes & Reviews:

"...All four are unusually beautiful examples of Scarlatti's refined yet expressive art; they require not only bel canto singing but also an acute awareness of the rhetorical importance of the texts...Christine Brandes has a voice in a hundred, full yet pure, with vibrato employed for its intended use - as an expressive device...ravishing singing and outstanding instrumental playing...strongly recommended to anyone interested in this exquisite repertoire..." -Robins, Fanfare
