It's difficult to condense an entire musical period into a single disc compilation, but hyperion here have done very well. The disc showcases 16 different composers and is therefore very good if you want a comprehensive introduction to the Baroque. All music here is performed by The Brandenburg Consort conducted by Roy Goodman.
I decided to buy this after listening to Roy Goodman's Bachs Orchestral Suites, and it is a very good overview of the Baroque period. As I've come to expect, each piece is played very well, and the recordings are of good quality.
Amazon doesn't seem to provide a track listing for this, so here you go. Hope this is of some use
