Notes & Reviews:

"Richard Boothby's playing of the solo music is beautifully lively and energetic, musical and ear-catching; and the Purcell quartet is a well-balanced group that plays with obvious enjoyment and has earned their excellent reputation. If you like the viol or Marais or just want to hear a really well-played example of French chamber music of the period of Louis XIV, this is a fine place to go." -American Record Guide

'Marais' music is full of interest, and the strong contrasting characters of individual movements are well served by the Purcell Quartet' (Which CD)
