Format: Audio CD
I would disagree with the previous reviewer. The performance by Sarah Cunningham is truly a consistent passionate, though, understated, effort throughout all 26 pieces. One flows effortlessly to the next. It builds then backs off, then builds again. Some pieces actually sublime. The consistency is truly wonderful. I say this as a previous double bass player with the viola close at hand in the orchestra. The viol on the other hand, has such a unique different set of overtones. I have listened to other viol CDs. No comparison to this performance. This performance with the selected composers is perfect.

Initially, I thought that the very pretty young lady pictured was Sarah Cunningham but it turned out to be one contemporary with the the original music. She is said to be "playing the viol" but actually is holding it and the bow separately. Nevertheless, the set of CDs beautifully illustrate the playing of the the viol de gamba. I have a small quarrel with the title: "passionate" hardly seems to describe all but the final few tracks. I'd call it melancholy and introspective.
