Notes & Reviews:

"A lovely disc when it was first released in 1987 as part of Hyperion's series of recording built around works based on the famous, sinuous La Folia theme, this disc of chamber and orchestral music by Francesco Geminiani performed by England's Purcell Quartet and Purcell Band was equally lovely when it was re-released twenty years later in 2007. Alternating between two Sonatas, three Trio Sonatas and two Concerto Grossi, the Purcell Quartet and Band have created a wonderfully varied program that never fatigues the listener with too much of anything. With ace period instrument violinists Catherine Mackintosh and Elizabeth Wallfisch, cellist Richard Boothby and harpsichordist Robert Wooley, the Purcell Quartet has a clear tone, a cool intonation and a lively sense of rhythm, and their performances are consistently enthusiastic and energetic." -All Music

'Another example of the riches Hyperion finds in Baroque corners' (The Magic Flute)
