Notes & Reviews:

"In this reissue, the playing is still as 'crisp' and the recording still as 'excellent' as our Mr. Purcell found them. Holman's group performs with only one player per part--appropriate to a London theater pit--with tart period-instrument sound. It is a particular pleasure, too, to hear again the vivacious trumpet work of Crispian Steele-Perkins. In all, a worthy reissue." -Barker, ARG
