3.0 out of 5 stars Beware, 15 Jan 2010
I chose to buy a CD rather than download because there are a number of obscure composers on the disc and I wanted to learn about them and their music. Sadly, these are the worst programme notes of all time. All you'll learn about Falconieri, for example, is that he's "groovy" and was a pioneer of crossover. In fact, you'll learn more about the man who chose Daniel Hope's clothes (Herr von Eden) for the publicity shots just by looking at the pics. The performances are OK - not great - but there's repertory you won't find elsewhere.
