    I've got volumes 2 and 3, I'll let you have them them later, I blow hot and cold, mostly I like what I hear, but this is saying more about me than about Gilbert Rowland. Anyway you mentioning them will prompt me to get them out.

    Let me to point out that Domenico Scarlatti also composed a very beautiful Stabat Mater a 10 voci with an elaborated counterpoint and strongly influenced by polyphony.

    D. Scarlatti - Stabat Mater. Concerto Italiano / Rinaldo Alessandrini.




    Still today is among my favourite sacred works recordings.

    Puyana for HM 2CD set uses beautiful 3 manual black key 1740 Hass instrument, listen to the deep throated low range on that beast, this was first set I can remember getting of Scarlatti sonatas......extra bass not needed

    Piano can never capture the same spirit.......
