Reviews

'It is fascinating to hear for the first time music by Banister and Grabu and Purcell's recently-discovered Staircase Overture' (Gramophone)

'A marvellous introduction to the instrumental world in which Purcell grew up' (Early Music Review)

'Forced to be restricted to one disc that conveys the essence of the period, this would be it. A must' (American Record Guide)
