Produced by veteran early music producer and violinist David Douglass and recorded by star recording engineer Dan Nichols, Rook's new album explores both the virtuosic and sublime in the music of the 16th and 17th centuries. The recording captures the energy of a Rook performance and is an excellent showcase for the unique instrumental combination of violin, trombone, bass violin and harpsichord.
