Notes and Editorial Reviews

A relatively little-trumpeted stopping-off point in Andrew Manze's extensive discography, but this is repertoire for which he has a real love, and whose violinistic fantasy suits his fearless inventiveness right down to the ground. Superb continuo playing, too, from Romanesca's other members, John Toll and Nigel North.

-- Gramophone [9/2007]
