This is emphatically not run-of-the-mill, dreary or clockwork Baroque. It is heartfelt music of the highest order, music which has been inexplicably forgotten. A younger contemporary of Bach's, working to the east in Silesia, Gebel lived and composed in the same musical and cultural world. (Amazon review)

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
