The distinguished American ensemble Musica Pacifica turns to England, Scotland, and Ireland for their latest recording on the Solimar label. The program draws from a variety of baroque and traditional pieces which receive excellent readings. Musica Pacifica’s new recording was a pleasure to listen to.
