This is a fantastic baroque piece!
It really captures the essence of baroque with that harpsichord and orchestral accents.
The only bad thing I can find to say about it (to nuance my praise just a tad) is that the samples could do with updating as the low notes of the harpsichord really char. With that said - taking the age of the mod into account, for the most part, the samples are fantastic!

Now, can someone point me to the full suite? If this is the prelude, I'd, for one, would like to hear the rest.

This is a really nicely done piece. It reminds me a lot of Vivaldi (especially his Seasons). It is a nice listen and as previously stated, a must for those who like Baroque. I really enjoyed it.

This was first posted over 10 years ago and not one single review yet? Maybe mod listeners aren't used to equating mods and classical music?

This heralds to the days of Baroque music. I believe this is an original composition by Counterpoint and not some remake of Bach. This is a 4-channel mod people and it sounds like a freakin' orchestra! A great selection of samples and flawless execution in using them to their full potential. Another masterpiece from the one and only Counterpoint.

If you like classical music and mods at the same time, you've got to give this one a listen!

Prelude #1 in D Min.

Greetings to:
Hot Shot, SlingShot,
and other members
of WesTower!

This is just a bit
of an attempt at a
sort of song...

I didn't know what
to call it, so
Prelude #1 will
have to do...

Any comments?
