Just lovely!

"The rich, mellow strains of four virtuoso guitarists playing together is both relaxing and intriguing. It is refreshing to hear these Baroque favorites rendered by the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet with a different texture and timbre that one normally hears. All four players--John Dearman, Scott Tennant, Bill Kanengiser and Andrew York--master their parts with incredible agility. This quartet is not above having a little fun with their subject matter too; their encore rendition of Pachelbel's famous canon incorporates percussion and interprets the piece in a variety of modern styles, taking full advantage of the adaptability of their instruments."
Baroque Guitar Renditions of Bach to Telemann Et Al

"This is quite the collection of Baroque compositions played and recorded superbly by this quitar quartet.From such exquisite works such as parts of the Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 to Handel's Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, they pull the transposition to strings with dignity and quality of the music.The Monteverdianna piece is superb in its chamber quality, touched by its would seem court jester type style. It is delightful in its upbeat transitions. The Telemann work for violin quarter is marvelous done on guitars, especially the Vivace which spins and darts around on one's ears with zeal and passion!The closing Pachelbel "Loose Canon" is a soft, soothing rendition of this fabulous Baroque composition which looms among the all-time classics!LAGQ is definitely top-notch! Definitely this is superb example of classical guitar well-done in the Baroque era."
More than pleasure: it takes my breathe away !
