5.0 out of 5 stars The Cape Canaveral of Baroque Music 9 May 2005
By Leslie Richford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The world of baroque music is its own fascinating cosmos, and one of its leading cosmonauts is Andrew Parrott, who, with his ensemble Taverner Players in full strength, has here returned to earth, so to speak, to build a perfect starting-ramp for others who might be interested in joining him in the vast reaches of 17th and 18th century harmony. Together with Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” (which Parrott has recorded twice, both for EMI and for the Japanese label Denon), the music recorded here (in 1987 at London’s Abbey Road studios) is possibly the most accessible and definitively the most popular of the baroque period and is guaranteed to take anyone listening to it into orbit and probably also on a journey that will introduce him to many other baroque composers who, for reasons of space and time, cannot be included on this disc. Handel’s “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” from the oratorio “Solomon” and his “Harp Concerto” (here wonderfully played by soloist Andrew Lawrence-King) provide an irresistible entrée; these are followed by some short extracts from music by Henry Purcell, Britain’s short-lived Restoration genius. In similar vein, there is Pachelbel’s “Canon and Gigue” in a delightfully clear interpretation; then, last but not least, excerpts from some of Bach’s cantatas, including the ever-present “Sinfonia” from Part 2 of his Christmas Oratorio and also the chorale “Jesus bleibet meine Freude”, better known in English as “Jesu, joy of man’s desiring”. The brilliant quality both of the original-instrument playing and the audio sound are surely just what is needed to win hearts and minds for this glorious musical epoque. If you are new to the baroque, buy it and enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure 16 Feb 2011
By MPrętorius - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The CD "A Baroque Festival" is a fine collection of Baroque music played beautifully. It's terrific that 'too much vibrato' has fallen out of favor with today's great players. The credits contain the name Elizabeth Wallfisch, always synonymous with excellence in performance and interpretation.

I've bought several of this CD for friends; all have told me how much they love it. (I'm listening to it as I type this.)
4.0 out of 5 stars Among the best Baroque collections 16 Jan 2011
By Music lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a collection of immediately appealing, strikingly performed selections from the Baroque era (1600-1720). There are different instrumental groupings so it never gets tiring. If you're just getting one baroque album for holiday background music, this is the one to get.
