Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new Baroque ensemble with a name that irresistibly evokes voyages and discoveries... a 17th-century Polish composer who has lain unfairly neglected in the archives of central Europe when his music is at once sensuous and sparkling, often reminiscent of certain pieces by Claudio Monteverdi... and here is the first recording of "Les Traversées Baroques". Double, triple or qudruple choirs testify to the splendour of a Baroque art herebrought to its zenith. everything on this Cd richly rewards exploration!
