The Armonico Consort return to disc on Signum (following their highly-regarded Naked Byrd CD series) with a new disc celebrating the glorious combination of soprano and trumpet in baroque music – featuring the soaring talents of Elin Manahan Thomas and Crispian Steele-Perkins.
Widely-praised for their imaginative and inventive programming, this disc features works by JS Bach (Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen), GP Telemann (Trumpet Concerto in D major), Alessandro Scarlatti (Su le sponde del Tebro) and a special compilation of works by Handel devised by Crispian Steele-Perkins.

“The tone is immediately set by Crispian Steele-Perkins' trilling trumpet on
Bach's "Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen", which also features quite thrilling
counterpoints between him and soprano Elin Manahan Thomas...[The Scarlatti's] most affecting passage is "Infelici miei lumi", where Thomas's heartbreaking vocal is borne on a haunting meniscus of strings.”
