The Best Baroque Album in the World ... Ever! 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Well, I don't know if I'd go that far but it is a very good Baroque album. It has lots of familiar material and provides a very pleasing and uplifting couple of hours of listening. I would recommend it without hesitation to anyone who likes Baroque music and it is particularly recommended for those who are wanting to learn more about this glorious period of musical history.
