“This superb recording is now my top recommendation for a period-instrument set of this music…In fact, after listening to the set again since writing the previous three sentences, I would say that this is my favorite complete set of these works on either period or modern instruments. This is one of those sets that I can hardly bring myself to remove from my CD player.” —American Record Guide

“The excellent Seattle Baroque Orchestra shows us what dynamic leadership can achieve in the 17th and 18th Century repertory… The musicians, playing on period instruments under music director Ingrid Matthews, deliver crisp, rhythmically infectious renditions of several concerted works… Seattle is fortunate to have such an accomplished baroque group.” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

“This is an eminently listenable and intelligently conceived concert-style program… Throughout one is aware of the stylistic know-how of the performers… Ellen Hargis shines in her solos.”
—Igor Kipnis, Early Music America

“Once again we have a North American ensemble that can equal the performance quality of any group in Europe. Perfect intonation and marvelous ensemble playing are evident throughout, and the group brings a daring intensity to all of the selections. Take note of the stellar keyboard playing by harpsichordist Byron Schenkman… This is a strongly recommended recording.” —Early Music America
