Notes & Reviews:

Hailed in his time as the "English Orpheus" and remembered posthumously in the oft-repeated quip, "A greater musical genius England never had," Henry Purcell (1659-1695) lived a tragically short yet incredibly productive life as a composer. His instrumental music forms a relatively small but impressive part of his total output, which includes dramatic music (opera and semi-opera), odes and welcome songs, sacred music, as well as secular vocal music. In the instrumental realm, he wrote overtures, dances and song tunes for various theatrical works, fantasias, In Nomines, harpsichord and organ music, as well as two collections of trio sonatas. Joined by Scott Metcalfe on the violin and viola, here Chatham Baroque explores Purcell’s music for strings and continuo.
