because it includes a flute is well 'silly'! There are numerous recordings with the scoring for flute, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord, not just a string trio!

While I liked the performance I am not certain why they prefaced some of the suites with arrangements from Les indes galantes. While he has a right to his opion,I find Mr. Sillitoe's criticims rather "irksome!"
