Nine Trio Sonatas, from the 1697 set of ten.
Carl Pini & John Tunnell, violins
Anthony Pini, cello / Harold Lester, harpsichord
Sensitive performances with tempi chosen to bring out the qualities of the music; restrained vibrato gives the violins that singing quality much prized in Purcell's time. Quiet pleasant listening, yet very tuneful.

Ode for St Cecilia's Day, 1692,
Alfred DELLER, soloists, the Deller Consort.

This Magnificent Ode was Purcell's last, and possibly greatest contribution to this regular yearly festival of music, clearly an inspiration for Handel! A selection of vocal solos by Deller and harpsichord pieces completes the 79 minute program.
