"This recording returns to the original sources of these manuscripts, as opposed to the mid 19th century editions that are more commonly performed and recorded which have been criticised for their inaccuracy.

This recording incorporates instruments of the original period, such as valveless brass and gut strings. In order to achieve a richer and fuller sound without compromising on timbre."

Watch Limelight (Australia) journalist, Clive Paget, speak about this recording in the video section.
