Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mi Palpita Il Cor: Baroque Passions is a compelling journey into the rich corners of the mid and late-Baroque period. Featuring an array of thrilling instrumental and vocal compositions, the album is driven by the performances of French-Canadian soprano Dominique Labelle and American early music ensemble Musica Pacifica, founded in 1990, based in San Francisco, and whose playing has been called "a small miracle of precision and musical electricity" by the Washington Post.
