Notes & Reviews:
"Searching for traces of once-admired Nassau court music in European and American libraries made it apparent that, despite large losses, there still survives a corpus of court music, though hard to fully assess due to its size and geographical scattering. The majority of these autographs and manuscripts are unheard pieces, condemned to two and one-half centuries of oblivion. The 350th birthday of Count Johann Ernst of Nassau-Weilburg (1664-1719) provides an appropriate occasion to let the brilliance of the Nassau court music be heard again.
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Prince Carl Christian of Nassau-Weilburg and Caroline Orange-Nassau-Diez appear to have had a richly varied taste in music, judging from this program of recently recovered vocal and instrumental music by Franz Christoph Neubauer, Giovanni Punto, Giuseppe Demachi, Johann Paul Rothfischer, and Carl Ludwig Junker. They are recorded here for the first time.
