If you buy the Bach Organ Book in this series, there are two redundant pieces on this compilation that you may not want as well, both lifted from the same recording by Brunelle, the "Prelude In C" and the "In Dulci Jubilo". The opening "Allegro" from Brandenburg Concerto No 3 is a gem marred by some slightly awry intonation but nevertheless played well by the Camerata Romana, as is the "Concerto For Two Violins". An interesting inclusion is two pieces played by the St Louis Brass Quintet and for my money; they make the disc worthwhile even though one is the hackneyed "Jesu Joy". The mellow, expressive sound of the brass ensemble is a lovely contrast to the sparkling, often brash sound of period instruments.
