Notes & Reviews:

"The music, much of it recorded here for the first time, is sheer delight from start to finish, each of the five cantatas combining frivolity, passion and drama in truly operatic fashion." ***** - Kate Bolton, BBC

bbc.co.uk - Andrew McGregor
Scholl's polished counter-tenor is suitably seductive, his interpretative instincts engaging...The playing of the Italian ensemble Accademia Bizantina, led from the harpsichord by Ottavio Dantone, is alive to every vocal gesture and the colourful opportunities offered by the text - the twittering of the birds, the crowing of the cock, the surging of the sea
