As you might know, Spotify is a veritable treasure trove of Baroque music... if you can find it! The metadata situation there is abysmal, and you simply will miss many recordings if you search by composer / performer. In this thread I would like to share some information about CDs which may be of interest to Baroque enthusiasts, which are definitely not well known, and which are available legally for free for any Spotify subscriber. (Or completely free, with ads between every 5 tracks or something, if you don't want to pay.)

THE XVIII CENTURY CANTATAS FROM GDANSK

The Sarton label has published a few CDs with XVIIIth-century cantatas from Gdansk (Danzig), under A.M. Szadejko.

All those are worth hearing. I hope we get more recordings of composers like Du Grain or Pucklitz (with his interesting take on 'Jesu, meines Lebens Leben' on the 'Lent cantatas' disc).
