Original Recording Format: DXD

This unusual ensemble of 12 guitars, 2 double basses and the occasional percussion offers a fresh, 21 st century glance at the baroque era. Forestare’s more modern guitar arrangement gives a new perspective to this traditional music which is normally played by small string chamber ensembles with the occasional wind instruments.

The energy emanating from the players make this a captivating introduction to the classical genre in a contemporary way. Without betraying the authenticity of these timeless compositions.

The audiophile DXD recording took place at the Saint Augustin Church in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada, which is known for its fine acoustics. Only three Schoeps M222 microphones were used in the Pure Decca Tree microphone technique.
