 "Splendor," indeed! January 16, 2013 By T. Norris (Brawley, CA) See All My Reviews "This two-disc set is an excellent compilation of music by the Baroque masters. So far, I have used it as accompaniment on my morning commute to work, as background while reading, and even as a relaxer for napping; it seems to fit every mood. In addition, it is very well done, both in performance and engineering; the playing is flawless and suitable to the music, and the sound is full and clear. One couldn't ask for more." Report Abuse
 Good except Stuttgart October 20, 2012 By Susanne P. See All My Reviews "I enjoyed the variety of composers. One can never go wrong with Christopher Hogwood or Trevor Pinnok. The selection from Stuttgart did not seem to fit in with the rest of the cd.. perhaps it was the pieces or the organization's style." Report Abuse
