This is the perhaps the best classical-electronica album ever, which is ironic since it was one of the first. Wendy's second album has been out of print for years and very hard to come by. But occasionally copies can be found by searching the internet.

"...This album, Carlos' follow up to Switched On Bach, is actually better than it's predecessor. This is to be expected as the technology improved, but perhaps more importantly, Carlos' feeling and attention to detail improved as well. The timbres are lighter and airer, and there is a greater sense of rhythm and intensity. And there is always something eerie about this work, and with most of her early recordings. The sounds are fluttery, elusive, sometimes off tune, and the pitches waver. I'm always struck at how bold her sound is, compared to other artists like the ethereal Isao Tomita, and this album is all the more rich and powerful because of it. If you have to own one of her early recordings, this is the one to get. The haunting final Monteverdi piece, with its strange, beautiful, and terrifying electronic vocals is worth the price of admission alone."
Carlos's best album?

"This was Wendy's second album released around 1970. The readings of the Scarlatti and Handel are very well done with good tempos and bright arrangements. The Monteverdi is also an amazing piece of early synthesizer work. Perhaps the crown work on this album is Bach's 4th Brandenburg Concerto, which Glenn Gould once called the the most perfect interpretation."
