"Philidor is a wholly unexpected but ravishing delight, coming as he does after long periods of studiously formal French court music. This is Paris not Versailles: intimate, colourful, unorthodox and as brilliant as a shaft of sunshine cutting through a day of cloud. The music is full of uncloying sweetness, unlaboured grace and unforced elan vital, and it's played to joyous perfection by the virtuosi of Ars Antiqua who hit every note with such sympathetic warmth that you feel they must all have known Philidor personally. We can all do with happy surprises and this delectable music, superbly interpreted is one of the best you'll ever have.”

Simon Schama, Art Historian & Presenter of BBC Documentaries.
