Notes & Reviews:

Trio Settecento, the "superlative Chicago-based early music ensemble" (Gramophone) completes its grand tour of the European Baroque with An English Fancy, its highly anticipated survey of English Baroque chamber works. It is the final leg of a musical journey that has delighted record collectors and critics alike. Early-instrument enthusiasts will be intrigued by the prominent role of the viola da gamba in this repertoire. Previous installments include An Italian Sojourn, A German Bouquet, and A French Soirée.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Lawes, Jenkins, Locke, and Simpson all contribute suites to this selection, Simpson's being The Little Consort Suite. The Purcell is a selection of airs, hornpipes, and dances from his various theater music. The program opens with Byrd's 'Sellinger's Rownde', which is a favorite of mine. This is a charming selection of pieces, charmingly played, and so very English!
