“What I have done with this recording is to put three instrumental trio sonatas all in different styles in with these wonderful intimate chamber vocal works. Each group of three Deutsche arias is followed by an instrumental work, one in the traditional sonata da chiesa style, one in the more sonata da camera style (with dance movements) and one in the Italian Concerto style.” – Ashley Solomon, director
