Baroque Music is my favourite style and style is just what this disc has. Arcangelo have an authentic texture as well as beautiful sound. Their accompaniments are full of rhymic excitement and soulful playing. Anna Prohaska is one of those sopranos, though light in voice, is rich in colour and passion. Many listeners prefer a straight-voice in this period of music but if you read about composers of the 17th and 18th centuries, they preferred a sound full of emotion and some vibrato. The coloratura is executed with ease and a roundness rarely heard in these pieces. A totally satisfying disc.

Latino Gold is unusual in that items I am used to hearing in an orchestral setting are left to the soloist (guitarist) to interpret and yet with orchestral accompaniment on some occasions. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the Cantilena of Villa Lobos worked so well with voice and guitar. Anna Prohaska has a beautiful sound and the two artists could be said to bring out the best in each other. An inspired choice of items beautifully recorded.

If you are a fan of Marius Goring, then you will be extremely disappointed as he is on the cast billing for this DVD as advertised on Amazon. Albert Lieven is the actor and although he is excellent in most films, he is not Marius Goring. The quality of the DVD is poor and Sean Connery's performance is stiff and unromantic.
Not very pleased at all with this purchase.
