A fine and well recorded journey through the 17th century, played on stringed instruments by expert musicians and recorded in crystal clear sound. As a bonus is added a modern work of great fun.
Many composers were unknown to me, yet all have the same high standard of composition. Well crafted in an effective way to please and delight the listeners of their time, and still in our time, can do the same. Perfect to play in the late evening with a glass of good wine and good company.
