Reviews

'Splendid, vigorous, animated, hilarious' (Hi-Fi News)

'Rollicking good 'Rollicking good fun' (The Cornish Guardian)

'Highly entertaining' (Classical Music)
Recent research suggests that this attractive piece may well be by Godfrey Finger, a Moravian composer who arrived in London around 1685. Obviously an early work, it is not a true sonata but rather a set of divisions on a ground.

from notes by Douglas Wootton 1981
