THE WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF MUSICIANS

Christopher Lawrence 

published in “Preserve Harmony” magazine  

Spring 2012

The recent CD from harpsichordist, conductor and early music specialist scholar Bridget Cunningham, is a rewarding and fascinating exploration of Handel and Ireland.

Bridget Cunningham’s engaging and accomplished playing , backed by insightful scholarship, add to our understanding and appreciation of this great composer and his influence. She quotes the opinion of Handel recorded by Alexander Pope, which makes the point better than any reviewer; ” Conceive the highest that you can of his abilities and they art much beyond anything you can conceive.”

This is a CD that rewards exploration and is to be recommended.
