The young, vibrant musicians of The Parnassian Ensemble spotted a gap in the early music market and have filled it with flair, producing a debut album of original music for two recorders and continuo from the time of Queen Anne, most of it not previously available on disc. The only ensemble in England concentrating on this repertoire, the Parnassians relish in introducing to audiences this fine, original, early eighteenth-century English recorder music which would otherwise remain virtually unknown. The enthusiastic reception led them to commit their expertise to disc. Since its formation in 1998, The Parnassian Ensemble has gained a reputation for its virtuostic performances and innovative programming.

"...For its exploration of little-known repertoire and its mixture of familiar and unfamiliar composers; for its thoroughly assured musicianship; for its well-balanced and clear recorded sound – this is a CD which will give much delight to any listener wishing to explore the music of the English baroque."
