Please also point me in the right direction for Walther, I could not find anything, searching for Plantier and Walther (what Walther anyway?) - thanks!

Allow me.... :)

yes, the Handel is the one you mention ASIN: B000OY6ITY
Johann Jakob Walther, Sonatas from Hortus Chelicus. ASIN: B000H0MJ98
Westhoff: Sonatas for violin & b.c. ASIN: B0007DDR1Y

All seem oop and somewhat pricey, another one is Biber: Fidicinium Sacro Profanum

Allow me.... :)



Q

Thank you both!

The Biber is noted, too ... speaking of Biber, how is the rosary release on Zig Zag, by Bismuth/La Tempesta? I can hardly get enough of that music:

Es wollt ein meydlein grasen gan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Und do die roten röslein stan:
Fick mich, lieber Peter!
Fick mich mehr, du hast dein ehr.
Kannstu nit, ich wills dich lern.
Fick mich, lieber Peter!

Patrick Bismuth is a player who seems to divide opinion a little bit—some people find his violin tone unpleasant and/or object to various mannerisms in his interpretations. I have not heard the entirety of his Rosary Sonatas & wouldn't consider what I did hear to suggest he was a first place contender, but he has interesting ideas that are worth hearing (and the ensemble is excellent). Sample before buying. (Sonata XVI, the "Guardian Angel" passacaglia, is probably a good overview of his strengths and idiosyncrasies.)

Thanks! I've got at least half a dozen recordings, so I'm not really in dire need of more ... if it's there, I'll see if I can sample.

I think I might have..... 15 recordings? Something like that? Plus a few I've ripped or downloaded but haven't listened to yet. The Rosary Sonatas Blind Comparison is probably coming eventually once I'm done with all my doctorate stuff >.>

(of course, I am also obviously insane)

I don't know the recording of the Mystery sonatas; it is also a different ensemble.
But most of these German/Austrian Baroque zigzag discs  seem rare now, so while this could be a sign that a box of them is overdue, this might not be the case and this repertoire is not terribly well covered (except for the mystery sonatas), so it might be good to get them if your provider does have some copies left for a normal price.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

The price is not the problem ... been there often enough that they give me a very attractive price  :)

Regarding German/Austrian Baroque, last time I went through their Zig Zag shelves, I took this one with me, and it's wonderful:



However, I have no idea how many of the items in question may still be in stock.
