Notes & Reviews:

The Brook Street Band celebrates its 20th anniversary as a champion of the music of Handel with another imaginative album that completes the ensemble's survey of Handel's Trio Sonatas for violins and continuo. A bonus is an arrangement for two violins and basso continuo of the overture to Handel's oratorio Esther.

BBC Music
Impeccable ... the vitality is riveting.

International Record Review
These performances have a powerful stamp of authority ... Handel himself would have found real cause for celebration.
