front_small_boxset
Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1645-1704) was the most distinguished French religious composer of his era. His output includes eleven Masses and numerous motets, psalms and oratorios, many of them extended works rich in texture, color and harmony, and contrpuntally resourceful.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Philips) Antonio Vivaldi – Concertos for 1, 2 and 4 Guitars (Los Romeros)

front_small_boxset
And again, the evidence that a digital production on vinyl better sounds than the same work on CD
Let’s face it: there have been literally hundreds of Vivaldi’s recordings made over the last 20 years (even longer if you include the many recordings made during the 60s and 70s that have since been digitally remastered), and while most of these recordings are just as good as the next, I found this particular recording to contain a certain depth and richness not usually associated with Baroque music. I use the word “depth” loosely as Baroque music is generally not meant to be “deep” or “expressive” in nature (after all, we’re not talking about Rachmaninov here!) 😉
