Schubert: Du Bist Die Ruh, D.776 (Langsam) (arr. for orchestra)
by Karin Brookes, March 9, 2020

This particular recording of this particular Lied has got under my skin, and I listen to it almost every day. When Nikolaus Harnoncourt retired from CMW, founded in 1953 and one of the very earliest progenitors of historical performance, many wondered if the ensemble could continue to thrive. This recording proved that it will flourish under Stefan Gottfried.


Pachelbel: Canon in D

by Dominic Giardino, March 8, 2020

Both of Musica Antiqua Köln’s recordings of Pachelbel’s (in)famous Canon in D served as my gateway into the world of Early Music. Even though these recordings are now thirty years old, they continue to remind me that the notes on the page aren’t inherently fun, but rather that our enjoyment of music comes from how we see and communicate those notes.


Handel: Thus When the Sun from's Wat'ry Bed

by Tekla Cunningham, March 7, 2020

This is such a gorgeous aria, full of yearning and tenderness. Also many happy memories of recording this with Aaron Sheehan, Stephen Stubbs and Pacific MusicWorks.
