4.0 out of 5 stars Strident Style August 5, 2005
John Wallace demonstrates considerable zeal in the performance of these pieces from his homeland. His style is really vastly different from any other trumpeter's I've heard; his tonguing is often explosive, and his vibrato (he uses it rarely) is slow and long. His volume is powerful. While I think his playing is ill-suited the the Italian baroque, he does capture the imperialist grandeur of the Empire in his playing. The highlight of the album is Arne's Rule Britannia. Edmund Barham's strong tenor is a good match for Wallace, and they cut throught the at-times cumbersome chorus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Baroque English Sampler January 2, 2014
This is a fine compilation of English music from the 17th and 18th Centuries, including a host of familiar favorites, from Handel to Purcell and Jeremiah Clarke, with a couple less famous composers thrown in as well. And, of course, there is a superb rendition of Arne's "Rule Britannia." The English String Orchestra under William Boughton play with shine and sparkle, making this a superb disc. I do believe, however, that these recordings have been subsumed within a later two-disc release that also includes some later English music, by Elgar and the like, so you might want to investigate that album instead of this earlier one. No matter which you opt for, however, you'll be getting some grand music well played.
