Notes & Reviews:

British-born Baroque violinist and conductor Garry Clarke and his Baroque Band, Chicago’s period-instrument orchestra, highlight unfamiliar overtures by 18th c. English composer Maurice Greene, otherwise best-remembered for his choral music. For its second Cedille recording, the ensemble has selected a program of works with what Clarke calls “whistle-able melodies, easy harmony, and inventive counterpoint.” Selections from Greene’s “Lessons for the Harpsichord,” performed by ensemble member (and Cedille solo keyboard artist) David Schrader, offer similar pleasures.
