Notes & Reviews:

Little is known about William Young's early development as a musician. This English composer and gambist spent the last years of his life in Innsbruck, at the court of the music-loving Archduke Ferdinand Karl. Excellent references even then documented this outstanding musician's renown. Young's works as transmitted today are highly varied in style, proving him to be an adaptable, versatile composer open to the developments of his time.

International Record Review
The whole ensemble gives spirited accounts of the various published and unpublished Italian sonatas. These are revealed as works of considerable imagination and melodic inspiration, fully justifying Young's reputation as the most important English composer of chamber music before Purcell....Crowned by exemplary sound engineering, this is a deligthful recital on every level.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
This is a collection of works, from a Prelude & Almain for solo lyra viol through a short sonata in D minor and a long suite in G minor for two violas da gamba and two fantasias for three viols. There are also two short sonatas for three violins and continuo, one for two, and a suite and two sonatas for one violin, viol, and continuo, as well as a set of divisions for viol and continuo. All of this material is lovely and imaginative and is played with warmth and tonal beauty.
