Notes and Editorial Reviews

New London Consort/Philip Pickett. Oiseau Lyre 452 000-2 [2 CDs; with orchestral selections from other works]

The 1995 recording from Pickett and the New London Consort offers thoughtful and illuminating performances of the suites, suavely played by an assembly of the world’s finest period-instrumentalists.
