Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, June 2012

This set consists of discs begun by Naxos in 1994 and appearing annually, more or less. The collection is designated as Volume I, though familiar as I am with this genre of music on Naxos, I’m not aware of many more albums that fit this designation—and I hope I’m wrong, because these are treasures! Interest in early music does not appear to be as keen as it once was, which is a shame. Unicorn’s dedicated members play a rich variety of ‘authentic’ exotic instruments: winds, strings and percussion, though my personal favourite has always been the hurdy-gurdy, or bagpipes if you prefer. …this is a bargain that’s hard to resist. © 2012 The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics
