Comments:Jan Hanford said:

A mostly beautiful cd, with the exception of a few moments where Julianne Baird is a bit off. But overall it is lovely and I enjoyed it.

The instrumental accompaniment is excellent and very polished. The inclusion of a couple flute sonatas makes me want to hear more of Emily Newbold. I didn't care for breaking up the movements of the sonatas with soprano arias and would have preferred to hear them played straight through. But Emily Newbold's playing is extraordinary, particularly in the arias.

Recommended for aria enthusiasts and fans of Julianne Baird.
