Notes & Reviews:

The Brook Street Band has easily earned its reputation as "the smartest new baroque band around (The Times, London). Among today's most notable Handel specialists, the all-girl group follows their first two records - the world-premiere chamber version of Handel's 'Oxford' Water Music (Gramophone Editor's Choice) and their sparkling rendition of the Trio Sonatas, Op. 5 - with the composer's other great set of Trio Sonatas, Op. 2. An utterly memorable collection of works that features Handel's imaginative "re-heating" of his own popular tunes, the recording once again brings forth the band's sheer pleasure in sharing the composer's wonderful music.

BBC Music Magazine
Impeccable...the vitality is riveting.

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

Gramophone Magazine, January 2014
The Brook Street Band play with plenty of charismatic brio but there is also affective compassion in reflective music...There are a few mild slips in the documentation but this is a fine addition to a strong discography.
