Significant service to Baroque music

The tracks on this CD convey many different moods, from the passionate young suitor to the old, melancholy man; from a drinking song to a cheeky treatise on kissing; from the mournful to the magical. Some of the composers and most of the songs were unknown to most people until Scholl recorded this CD and he has done Baroque music excellent service by doing so. The recording quality is typically Harmonia Mundi, excellent throughout: expertly close-miked to convey the Scholl voice without being too close. Andreas Scholl’s tone is as pure as ever on every track, his diction famously clear and his expression excellent. The lute song An der Eisamkeit (Solitude) is particularly affecting and reminiscent of Dowland’s sad songs. For Scholl fans, even those whose German is shaky or non-existent, this is a must – Scholl full-on. For countertenor fans, a revelation of some delightful elements of the early German CT repertoire – a significant discovery. One of my very favourite Scholl CDs.
