The regions of Saxony and Thuringia contain some of the most important musical cities of the German Baroque, including the likes of Leipzig, Dresden, Halle and Mühlhausen. This programme of 17th-century sacred and secular works for voice and winds shows both the strong impact there of Italian music and the firm presence of the Lutheran church - influences that would later feed into the work of the regions' two greatest names, Bach and Handel.

'The splendid young sackbut and cornett ensemble QuintEssential ... purring like a Rolls-Royce engine no less.'
