Notes & Reviews:

For this program cpo selected two English composers from the numerous musicians-composers active during the great period of flourishing at the court of Ernst III, drawing on the rich sources of their music to illustrate the wide spectrum of instrumental performance opportunities available at the time. Brade's five printed collections consist exclusively of dances composed or arranged by him and demonstrate his success both as an instrumentalist and a composer. He is the first English composer for whom cpo has an extant canzona and a solo piece for violin.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
In renaissance Germany, around the time of the beginning of the Reformation, there was a great flourishing of culture in the Weser region at several of the courts, specifically Kassel, Wolfenbuttel, Buckeburg, and Brake. The cultural achievements at the court of Count Ernst III von Schaumburg around 1600 were particularly notable. From the many musicians that were part of this cultural flowering, two were chosen for this program, both notable because they were Englishmen who worked at one time or another in the court of Ernst III. They are gracefully performed by this small orchestra and make for quite lovely listening. The sound is excellent, and the booklet has extensive and detailed notes.
