Comments:Stephen L. Nelson said:

This is a very nice recording. Those who enjoy Bach on ANY "non-traditional" instruments will probably like this one. The sound quality is a wee-bit murky at the beginning of the first track, but the engineers seemed to resolve that problem quickly, and the remainder of the recording is technically fine, and the quality of the performance is nearly flawless.
