Notes and Editorial Reviews
St. Martin's newest recording, Enlightenment A Cappella, is a fascinating collection of seldom-heard unaccompanied works from the 18th century, when most choral music employed basso continuo. This musical tour of Europe features music by Doles, Graun, Kuhnau, Pitoni, Blow, Mozart and many others.
