"There are many Baroque samplers out there, but none so beautifully recorded as this. Originally released in the 1980s to the great delight of American audiophiles, these two discs have now been remastered using HDCD technology. The interpretations are stylish and the recording is simply glorious: detailed, airy and warm." --Andrew Farach-Colton
"The ten players of Tafelmusik produce a beautiful sonority, somewhat lush-sounding to ears attuned to current period performance. At the very least, this CD delivers a classy easy-listening experience. The Helicon Ensemble's playing is
both impeccable and exciting, and Fuller's imaginative continuo is a plus. Here, too, the recording is gorgeous, illuminating to great effect the left-right lead violins featured throughout." --Wayne Donnelly, LISTENER
"A Mercedes-limo bargain given the musical contents, impeccable presentaion, and sheer luxury of Ref/Rec’s HDCD sound. Go buy, if you haven’t the originals –or even if you have." –Roger Dettmer, classicalcdreview.com
