BACH, C.P.E.: Clavichord Sonatas (Nicholson) Phoenix451
BACH, C.P.E.: Flute Sonatas (Haupt, Thalheim, Pank) Phoenix452
BACH, C.P.E.: Vocal Works (Rheinische Kantorei, Das Kleine Konzert, Max) Phoenix453
BACH, C.P.E.: Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu (Die) / Gott hat den Herrn auferweckt (Schlick, Pregardien, Schwarz, Elliott, Max) Phoenix456

The very positive judgements I made in the earlier reviews still stand. The performances here are very strong and hold up quite well even to later competition (as in the symphonies and concertos). The sonics remain thoroughly satisfying. To be sure, booklet notes are sparse, and vocal texts are given only in the original German.

I hope that Phoenix will go on and revive more of its fine contributions to the swelling discography of this important composer.
