Overview

There are many Baroque samplers out there, but none so beautifully recorded as this. Originally released in the 1980s to the great delight of American audiophiles, these two discs have now been remastered using HDCD technology and are being offered as a bargain-priced "twofer." The first CD features the Canadian ensemble Tafelmusik in Pachelbel's Canon, Bach's Air on the G String, selections from Handel's Water Music, and other popular pieces by Purcell, Telemann, and Vivaldi. A delightful mix of solo, chamber, and orchestral music by Bach and Vivaldi performed by the Helicon Ensemble comprises the second disc. The interpretations are stylish and the recording is simply glorious: detailed, airy, and warm.
