I've been a fan of Chatham Baroque for years. Every CD has music carefully selected to open your ears to new delights. The music is played with technical sparkle, but also with genuine feeling. And every CD sounds so different. The theater music of Henry Purcell is more familiar musical territory, but I can't think of a group that could do it better. This CD is just a delight from beginning to end.
