Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[Gardiner's] choice of soloists is unerring and the musicianship of [his ensembles] always imposing. Rhythm articulation is light but well defined, and there is great technical finesse and unanimity of ensemble." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs "[Gardiner's] choice of soloists is unerring and the musicianship of [his ensembles] always imposing.
