Jeanne Lamon & Tafelmusik are always top-notch, but countertenor Daniel Taylor is stunning.
Jeanne Lamon has been performing and recording early music since 1981 with Tafelmusik. Early music orchestras have certainly established a firm place in the world of concert music and Lamon's group has been an important part of that.
It must have taken quite a bit of courage to try to establish an "authentic" Baroque music ensemble which might have been seen as nothing more than a curiosity along side well-established modern orchestras.
The stunning surprise here is countertenor Daniel Taylor. Taylor's voice has depth, ease and clarity as he sings Cantata BWV 170 and 54.
