Notes & Reviews:

Following the resounding success of their first two Beatles Baroque albums (Vol. I, ATM22218 and Vol. II, ATM22268), Montreal 's Les Boreades are back with their latest in the collection of Beatles tunes on early instruments. New York-based conductor and continuo player Eric Milnes has arranged some of the Beatles ' most enduring hits (All You Need is Love, Hey Jude, The Long and Winding Road, among others) for period instruments, including recorder, Baroque violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord. The result is an astonishingly fresh take on the musical and lyrical genius of the world 's most famous band. Milnes has set out to reconstruct these songs as if they had been written three centuries ago. "All throughout the 1960s musicologists were extolling the virtues of the Beatles ' music, with references to qualities which resonated with echoes of the 16th -18th centuries," Milnes says. "This was often scoffed at. And yet, the echoes remain. So many of the songs remind me of Dowland, Purcell, Handel and Bach."
