"Henriksen's technical and musical accomplishments in the solos, as well as in the ensemble pieces, were remarkable. The listeners witnessed a performance which was perfectly transparent in tone and consistently correct in style." BASELLANDSCHAFTLICHE ZEITUNG, SWITZERLAND
"Particularly noteworthy (was) the wonderful soprano gamba work by Jordi Savall and Carol Lewis... "Ludi Musici from Germany" (composed by Samuel Scheidt in the early seventeenth century) was gorgeous, suggesting burgundy shadows of melancholy and included imitation between gambas that finally burst into a joyful chorus in "Galliard Battaglia XXI."
