Comments:John Gaither said:

Instruments of the period, now archaic. The lute-harpsichord, strung with gut, was re-built by the performer. Very sonorous recording. Liner notes in English, French, German and Hungarian. Wide variety of colors and moods in this marvelous recording. Mr. Sarkozy is a man who enters into the spirit of his work.
