We enjoy all our recordings.

That's hardly surprising;
we are a small company
and we record the music we like
in the hope that others will like it too.

When we were listening to the initial compilation of
The Art of the Chaconne
we found ourselves asking: is this our best yet?
We really enjoyed it so much.

The Chaconne (Chacony in English) is the epitome
of all that's best in baroque music:
order, pattern, melody, relaxed
and easy on the ear.

Here we have a programme devoted to the Chaconne.
The instrumentation is varied:
orchestra, organ, harpsichord, lute.
We have some wonderful chaconnes
by many great baroque composers.

This is a programme to study the chaconne,
or just to sit back and enjoy.
