"In these Sonatas Purcell turns to a new concerted style which has been developed in Italy. Interspersed among the Sonatas are three earlier and highly chromatic Pavans and the famous Chacony. The playing is authoritative and idiomatic, and the artists are firmly focused in a warm but not exceessively reverberant accoustic. This is Purcell at his finest."
