Notes & Reviews:

The 'Eric Clapton of the lute' (BBC Magazine) comes back to the Alpha microphones, this time with the soprano Anna Reinhold. Here, Thomas Dunford applies his truly prodigious virtuosity to the eight Toccatas from the first book by Meister Kapsberger, giving us a veritable concert such as the composer himself might have proposed with, in counterpoint to the toccatas, a few of the loveliest airs by Caccini, Merula et al. The beauty of Anna Reinhold's voice (a young talent noticed especially in William Christie's 'Jardin des voix') has a freshness and energy that bring to mind the young performers at work in Alpha's earliest recordings. This goes to prove that there still remains much distance to cover in the discovery of Baroque art.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This is a very imaginative and engaging way to hear the lute music of Girolamo Kapsberger (c 1580-1651) because half the program is solo vocal music by his contemporaries Caccini, Monteverdi, Strozzi, and Merula. All these composers contributed significantly to the highest expression of 17th-Century monody that flourished in Medici Florence. The eight lute toccatas (from Kapsberger's 1611 first book of lute music) act as reflections on, commentary about, and introductions to the mood and meaning of the vocal pieces.
