Just discovered Andreas Scholl?  Wondering which CDs to get?

Andreas Scholl’s extraordinary voice brought many people to so-called 'early music' for the first time.  His core repertoire is music of the late Renaissance and, more especially, of the Baroque: roughly 1600 to 1750. The range of composers whose work he has recorded is wide and if you don’t know what to buy next, this list may help.  The 'Listen' score is merely our opinion, offered to those not very familiar with the Baroque alto repertoire.  Listen-1 means 'newcomers usually like this at first hearing'.  Listen-5 means 'perhaps a bit more obscure but you'll be glad you stuck with it'.

An die Einsamkeit

Einsamkeit, du qual der Hertzen,
du verdebst mir alle Lust.
Will ich nur ein wenig Schertzen
finden sich die größten Schmertzen
in der abgezehrten Brust!
Solitude, you heart's torment,
You quell all joy in me.
If I attempt the slightest jest,
The greatest pain transfixes 
My wasted breast.
