Gratuitous Musickal Posting


These lovely and talented ladies are the Brook Street Band, an up-and-coming young period instrument group. The other day I heard a selection from their recording of Handel's Opus 5 Trio Sonatas on the radio while headed for work, and immediately dashed off to the devil's website to order the CD as soon as I got to the office. Having just got it into my hot little hands and heard it all the way through, I can say that it does not disappoint in the least.

I used to have a cassette recording of these pieces performed by Trevor Pinnock & friends. I was never able to find a CD version of it, nor have I until now found what I considered to be a really good alternative. I'm happy to report that the ladies of the BSB fill that bill very well indeed.
