Comments:Jan Hanford said:

Huguette Dreyfus is one of my favorite harpsichordists and I seek out everything she has recorded. I had this recording on vinyl back in the 70's and I was excited to find it on cd, now sadly out of print. Her elegant and intelligent interpretation really appeals to me. A lively and delicate performance.
