REVIEWS
"A gorgeous, generous recital of music that I love deeply...The amazing Baird’s exceptional, lightly nuanced voice is naturally reproduced (and has never sounded younger or fresher)...The small Lux Musica ensemble (flute, violin and cello) enhances the sensual pleasures of the music."
LAURENCE VITTES, AUDIOPHILE AUDITION 2004
"Julianne Baird has never been in lovelier voice as she spins out the lines with subtle elegance, responding warmly to the hints of local colour, Scotch snaps and the like, in an entirely natural manner...the Lux Musica ensemble excels...'Celtic Caravans' provides almost indecent pleasure."
GRAMOPHONE, FEBRUARY 2005
PROGRAM NOTES
Julianne Baird has been hailed as "one of the most extraordinary voices in the service of early music that this generation has produced. She possesses a natural musicianship which engenders singing of supreme expressive beauty." She maintains a busy concert schedule of solo recitals and performances of baroque opera and oratorio.

Linda Burman-Hall, best known as a performer of historic keyboard works, is active not only as a recitalist and ensemble director, but as a research musicologist and professor at University of California, Santa Cruz, where she teaches research techniques, early keyboards, chamber music and courses in world music. She has an extensive recording catalogue, and continues to contribute to the world's available recorded repertoire.
