As the Academy of St Martin in the Fields continues on into its sixth decade...this collection provides a worthwhile reminder of its length of service and the range of its founder...Despite their use of modern instruments and vibrato, Academy of St Martin in the Fields's music-making here is clean and decisive, their unhurried account of the Arrivel of the Queen of Sheba spry and animated.
