Description: Since Henry Purcell wrote no chamber works for the recorder but happily arranged his own ensemble music for other forces, the players here have transcribed solo keyboard pieces for recorder and continuo here. Brother Daniel's four sonatas include three original recorder sonatas and one transcribed from violin. Daniel's works are quite in the Italian style while Henry's show that well-known mixture of French, German and Italian styles common in the English baroque. Ensemble Mediolanum.
