 Well Played, Entertaining March 23, 2013 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "I initially cultivated an interest in Sweelinck's organ music and expanded to his harpsichord music which is in many cases the same as his organ program. I found both the playing and sound satisfying, the low Naxos price is also a plus. Good listening. Recommended for those interested in Baroque from this very influencial composer from The Netherlands." Report Abuse
