Sonata in G

composer
possibly by Godfrey Finger

 
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
