Purcell was especially proud of his 1683 set of sonatas, as well he might: endlessly inventive, fusing different European styles yet retaining his distinctive voice, these works have been lucky on record. The present version is steelier than the Retrospect Trio’s warmer approach (Linn), while at the same time being more flexible in terms of tempi and continuo. With generous playing times and excellent sound apiece, be sure you own one or the other.
