Released to celebrate the 350th anniversary of Henry Purcell’s birth, this is the recording debut of Retrospect Trio, a group formed under the umbrella of the larger Retrospect brand (formerly known as The King’s Consort). Originally released in 2009, this recording explores the timeless beauty of Purcell’s first set of sonatas including the magnificent Sonata IX, known as 'The Golden Sonata'. The Ten Sonatas in Four Parts (published after Purcell's death in 1697) provide fascinating insight into the cosmopolitan and often conflicting stylistic tastes of English musicians in the latter 17th c.
