5.0 out of 5 stars Bliss March 21, 2006
If you've been hesitating to buy this CD because of the price, I can heartily state that it is well worth the money. This CD has never strayed far from my player in the three years I've had it. The Viol here is such a gentle and eloquent intrument; always mellow but with such a rich, captivating coloured texture. I love to chill out to this. Very relaxing, very mellow. Outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful collection November 8, 2013
I love this CD. It is a collection of pieces for 1, 2, and 3 bass viols by English composers (or those working in England) from Purcell to Handel. They include minor composers I'd never heard of - Gottfried Finger and Benjamin Hely, to name but two - and the whole collection is an unalloyed delight. The music is often charming and sometimes very moving. It is never lightweight and it is always thoroughly enjoyable.

The musicianship from Mark Caudle and The Parley of Instruments is really first rate and the sound of the bass viols and the consort players is rich and lovely. All in all this is a cracking disc, a treasure of my collection and it is very warmly recommended indeed.
