Christopher Ball

Praetorius Consort

Catalogue number: RRC 1076

Price: £6.00

This hugely enjoyable CD features truly virtuoso playing on a variety of weird and wonderful instruments by the Praetorius Consort, an early music group directed by Christopher Ball, which enjoyed considerable popularity during the early music "boom" in the 1970s. Includes some music originally heard on a highly successful EMI release.

(from reviews of original EMI release): "Foot-tapping and most appealing" (Music Week)

"Few will doubt it matches full-price rivals in every way" (Guardian)

"Energy and accuracy ... stylish embellishments ... considerable panache" (Gramophone)

"Recording crisp and clean, of demonstration quality" (Penguin Guide)

(from review of current release): "Fun for all the family ... well played ... highly recommended, with lively and colourful performances, especially as it is at bargain price" (Gary Higginson, Musicweb, featured as "Bargain of the Month")
