 A Wonderful Compilation of 18th Century Music August 8, 2015 By Stephanie J. H. (Manchester, NJ) See All My Reviews "The highlight of this album, for me, is Geminiani's take on "La Folia." It is gorgeous. There are so many variations of this piece of music, and is seems each is better than the other. This is the perfect album to put on after a crazy day at work, or a busy day, and you just want to "stretch out." This is Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert at their best!" Report Abuse
