This compilation offers a selection of the best recordings of French baroque repertoire drawn from Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra’s own catalogue. The album includes the 2005 JUNO Award-winning, Grammy Award-nominated recording of an orchestral suite from Rameau’s epic five-act “tragédie en musique” Dardanus, originally released on CBC Records. The Tafelmusik Chamber Choir and guest soloists are featured in a 2006 CBC recording of the Grand Motet “Dominus regnavit” by Mondonville. Two works are drawn from Tafelmusik’s genre-defying, globe-trotting, multi-media concert programmes: a suite from Lully’s Phaëton from the 2009 DVD/CD recording of The Galileo Project, and a suite from Marais’ Alcyone from the 2012 DVD/CD recording of House of Dreams
 
"Ms. Lamon and Tafelmusik have earned high marks … the music's greatness might not be so obvious but for Tafelmusik's fine period style… It will have listeners wondering why this music is not as well-known as works by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi." —The New York Times
