Description: Two extras make this recital of late 17th century North German sacred vocal works (and a couple of instrumental pieces by Becker) worthy of increased interest: the use of a violino piccolo (tuned a third higher than the violin) which was quite common at the time but had vanished by the middle of the 1700s, and, instead of a small positive organ, the luscious sound carpeting of the organ of the church where the recording was made (St. Loup sur Thouet). German-English texts. Stephan Mac Leod (bass), Ricercar Consort; Philippe Pierlot.
