"The krummhorn is a unique renaissance instrument. Some people are irritated by its buzzing reedy sound. Some people are enchanted by it. I happen to fall in the latter category. So I love this CD. It is rich and hearty. A krummhorn feast. If you aren't a krummhorn fan, then this is not for you. The collection was chosen and arranged to showcase the instrument. But for those who are transported back in time by it, then this is a must-have CD. This was well done."
