Neville Marriner conducting St. Martin-in-the-Fields: The Academy By Request

Another of those baroque collections with the usual suspects. That being said, this is about the best one I have. Purchased this as an import back in the 1980’s, must have really wanted it since I had to special order it from New York. I have two other LPs from the same importer, so I guess they were ordered at the same time. Anyway, wonderful collection with stellar playing, and I am sure the CD sounds even better.
