Notes & Reviews:

This collection is indeed a rich cross-section of Baroque music, and many of the works are indeed familiar. But equally noteworthy, this compilation showcases the remarkable work of Andrew Parrott and his ensembles, who succeed in making this familiar, centuries-old music new again.
