A rousing trumpet ensemble with organ accompaniment playing festive Baroque trumpet music from the French and English Courts.

OXFORD TIMES (June 1999)
Their splendid sound of seven trumpets is reduced to three on this CD (though, well-recorded in St Barnabas' Church, it hardly sounds like it). This is a sumptuous survey of court music in the late 17th century and early 19th century England and France, headed by Handel and Purcell, Lully and Charpentier.
