Partitas in G minor/C minor/ in D/in F/& in E minor.
Harpsichord by William Horn, after Ioannes Ruckers 1638.
In this case I will not repeat myself in praising this recording. My previous reviews of the first 6 volumes are testament of that. The sound is most excellent and all the partitas are played on the Harpsichord. Remember Stella is in a contemplative mood, and takes his time. If you like a fast and furious Froberger, this is not for you. It's not grand and flashy, but inward playing, with great results on the outside, and your ears.
