After digging around online, I found this, which I am very excited about. I will likely order it soon, but was interested in anyone's thoughts...

Harry recommends it (and I seem to remember others doing so too). Here is a review to part of it, which gives it a major thumbs up:

Yes I'd appreciate a comment from someone about that as compared with the Sweelinck choral music on NM. I have the latter but I've never heard the former, I'm not sure I'm enough of a Sweelinck freak to want both unless the Van der Kamp is really saying something very different from the earlier set, or doing something better.

Having said that Van Nevel's Sweelinck is a joy I think.


(It's on Qobuz so I can check it out sometime for myself.)

Sadly Qobuz is not available in the U.S.
