Some of the highlights of the collection are the "Canzon à 12 in echo" which requires all three brass ensembles who usually echo only the last part of a melodic statement rather than imitate the full line; the incredible interweavings of the "Canzon à 12"; the sombre meditations of the "Sonata pian' e forte"; the joyful forward-rushing lines and magnificence of the "Canzon per sonare no. 2"; the Frescobaldi "Toccata in D minor" with its extraordinary improvisations over long pedal tones, and the "Toccata in G major" with its unusual melodies and variations. Needless to say, all the performanes are top notch with great verve, intonation skill, and clarity of ensemble articulation.
