Catalogue Number: 08M027
Reference: CDD 22063
Description: Originally part of "The English Orpheus" series, this set of backward-looking works (well, backward for 1747 when the first 12 were published) was based on Corelli with reminders of Purcell and Handel as well as contemporary French and German music. To vary the sound, Holman used an "orchestra" of 12 players for nine of the sonatas and a quartet for the others. 2 CDs for the price of 1. The Parley of Instruments; Peter Holman. Original 1996 Hyperion release.
