“Robert Aldwinckle is an accomplished player, well known beyond early-music circles. He offers here a potpourri of familiar harpsichord pieces from the 17th and 18th centuries, intended as an introduction, which he performs on two replica instruments built by John Horniblow. The choice of repertoire ….is confidently performed.……many will be delighted to find so many of the harpsichord ‘classics’ gathered together on a single CD.” (Gramophone)
