Reviews

'This 1986 recording is still worth hearing. The 'conversational' trio sonata is an astonishing attempt to prove that music can communicate without the need for words, and there is brilliance in the gamba sonata' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The Purcell Quartet play with sensitivity and seem well attuned to the particularly individual sensibility of this composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
