This recording will serve those who want the aural equivalent of an Urtext edition very well. The performance is objective in every sense, being uninflected by an evident interpretation. Much better are the Leonhardt, Cates, Brookshire, and Rousset recordings, by a very wide margin. Each of these recordings features a distinctive interpretive approach that one can like or dislike. Moroney's approach will offend no one, but will likely bore many. This recording is representative of the pseudo-authenticity that reached a peak in popularity around 1980, but which has not worn well, have been superceded by a new wave of early music performers, each with his or her own voice. Moroney plays much as an editor edits, seeking absolute "transparency" through his unwillingness to inflict his own hand on the "text."
