Notes & Reviews:

A Strong line up of 13 of the greatest Baroque arias performed by the top artists! Its first released was greeted enthusiastically by Gramophone: "enjoyable (collection) of arias sacred and secular... performances that would be hard to better - in expressivity, quality of tone and diction, intonation, control of vibrato, and absence of technical strain... The recording is as clear as a frosty morning, the acoustic spacious, and the balance exemplary... A disc I shall often return to... Warmly recommended."

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St. Pauls', Southgate, London (1987).
