‘This attractive disc includes two examples by Italians and one Dutch piece … but the natives do pretty well, and the best and most individual work is the sonata by Joseph Gibbs … its finale is a hauntingly beautiful set of variations – all played here with just the right freedom of spirit and immediacy of musical response by Elizabeth Wallfisch’ (Gramophone)

‘An attractive collection of English violin music of the period … recording and presentation are first-rate’ (British Music Society Journal)
