Product Description

Houston Baroque, founded in 2014 by Patrick Parker with a core quintet of professional singers and period-instrument players, presents its first recording. Buxtehude and Handel received early training on the organ, and both were influenced by Hamburg's musical scene. The group performs with the 2014 Martin Pasi organ at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, Houston, following their concertizing with music of a certain place and time in three genres: vocal, instrumental chamber music, and solo organ. Together, all three genres encompass the departed culture and aesthetic Houston Baroque revives and honors. Performers are soprano Megan Stapleton, violinist Nadia Lesinska, lutenist Bruce Brogdon, gambist Jordan Witherspoon, and keyboardist Patrick Parker.
