Notes & Reviews:

William Croft (1678 - 1727) was a distinguished English composer who knew Purcell in his youth and later overlapped with Handel at the English court. His unjustly neglected violin sonatas have never before been recorded all on one disc, and this recording also contains the world premiere recording of an anonymous seven-movement sonata from the same period. This astonishing piece contains the earliest known example of a virtuoso obbligato harpsichord part in an English violin sonata.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: St. Lawrence Church, West Wycombe, England (09/30/2009-10/02/2009).
