This is simply a wonderful recording of violin music. Holloway, Ritchie and Manze are among the best Baroque players in the world and so getting to hear them all together is quite a treat. Most of the composers are fairly obscure but the music is of high quality and the performances are full of life and color. As was the style then, ornaments and flourishes are often added by the performers.
My favorite pieces include the beautiful "Three Parts Upon a Ground" by Purcell with it's luxurious sonorities and flights of fancy, as well as the Marini Echo Sonata and the very appealing Sonata for three violins by Schmelzer. You also get to hear the famous (or infamous) Pachelbel Cannon in a wonderfully fresh performance, stripped of the laborious, pompous pedantry with which modern performers often approach it. Rather than a slow, "wedding procession" we get a gracious, dance-like and, yes, even virtuoso performance which also includes the energetic Gigue which is supposed to immediatly follow the Canon.

Many contemporary listeners will eat up any old version of Pachelbel's Cannon like it was candy. Most versions out there are redundant hash. Here, however, is a fantastic version done well on period instruments. This is more like it.

6 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on January 20, 2001
Andrew Manze has made a name for himself by making exquisite performances, predominently on period instruments, of both greater and lesser known Baroque music. His recordings are not for everyone, but they certainly have introduced classical listeners to countless composers that history had long since forgotten. This CD featuring an original version of Pachelbel's "Canon" is no different. Baroque Violinists Manze, John Holloway and Stanley Ritchie and harpsichordist/organist John Toll, along with Nigel North on theorbo, and Mary Springfels on viola da gamba, tackle obscure pieces by (equally obscure composers) Marini, Uccellini, Hacquart, Buonamente and Rosier. The albums best performances are the original version of "Canon" and Pachelbel's "Gigue," and Purcell's "Three Parts Upon A Ground," which sounds more like the modern versions of "Canon" than this original version does. While this is a wonderful session, many will want a more modern rendition and might I suggest Karajan's or the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra's recording for that. However, if you are looking for a fine collection of lesser-known Baroque masterpieces, and a different take on some better known Baroque favorites, then you have come to the right place.
