What this release -- with the "Pachelbel Canon", gracefully played, as its obvious draw -- certainly creates is a brightly lit shop window for The English Concert's approach to music of the 17th and 18th centuries . . . the "Arrival of the Queen of Sheba", is crisp, vigorous and as exciting and colourful as it was clearly intended to be. The same applies to the sparkling Vivaldi Sinfonia. The most interesting items in the programme, though, are the concertos by Haydn, Albinoni and Avison -- in that order . . . Pinnock's harpsichord-playing is authoritative and convincing . . . Much to enjoy, and it should have a wide appeal.
