If you love Baroque music this is a CD that will deepen your appreciation of it and lead to many hours of blissful listening. You will also learn that Jacquet de la Guerre is one of many female composers throughout history who have been overlooked, forgotten and underappreciated. My favorite pieces are the cantatas. The soprano soars on the sacred cantata Ester. On the secular cantata, Le Sommeil d'Ulisse,the violin, flute, harpsichord and voice weave together in beautiful harmony. The harpsichord playing is amazing. On each listen, there is so much more to discover. Frances Fitch and friends bring de la Guerre's music back to life so that we may enjoy it in the 21st century and go off the beaten path to appreciate a lesser known but worthy composer. The few spoken word tracks on these 2 CDs includes letters from de la Guerre in French with English translation in the liner notes, which adds to the feeling of immersion in a different time and place.
