 What a treat July 1, 2015 By Steven Mitchell Freedman (Raleigh, NC) See All My Reviews "What a treat is this CD. The music is simply splendid and the artistry of the performers delights the ears. The liner notes which accompany the CD are among the best I have ever seen in many recordings. They are comprehensive, informative, and very instructive about the music. The producers of this CD should take a bow for their work. If you enjoy the works of Rameau and Lully, you will find this CD very rewarding." Report Abuse
