Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I know no one who seriously believes that Bach played the lute but it is beyond question that he loved the sounds it made... Regarding Stubbs’s performances, it is enough to say that they are in all respects among the very best in what is a fairly crowded competitive field. The same may be said of the recording quality and the annotation. Heartily recommended."
John Duarte, The Gramophone
