What terribly nice people the 18th-century Moravians sound from their music. The charming chorales and galant aria settings of daily biblical ‘watchwords’, in Boston Baroque’s crisp performances, conjure up images of innocent, shining faces. The style reflects that of their German homeland, simplified for amateurs. Janet Banks
