Notes & Reviews:

"...This new version [of The Four Seasons] will certainly take its place in the upper reaches of a dauntingly congested league-table...what, if anything, is of valid novelty here? The answer lies in the continuo department where a uniquely colourful colloquium of instruments has been assembled...a lirone, baroque lute, cittern, archlute, guitar, theorbo, arch-cittern, harp and psaltry, together with harpsichord, organ and regal...An unexpectedly interesting release." -NA, Gramophone
