There is fine artistry from the duo. The original instruments and their charming sound and the broad spectrum of works on this disk set (which comes as a standard stereo mix on CD and 5:1 on a Blu-Ray) gives you a quite lovely window on the past. Music by Dowland, Bach, Handel, Boismortier and Locatelli match up with no-less intriguing folk airs from England, Scotland, Ireland and Brittany.
The sonic transitions afforded via the various flutes, fifes, harp and bagpipes by Ms. Rosenfeld alters the sonority from piece-to-piece, as does Ronn McFarland's sound on the various period lutes.
The two work together as one, turning in performances that delight my ears.
Such a journey back in time satisfies; the sound exhilarates. Get this one and revel in Euro-roots as if on a time machine.
