"A certain winner for all who enjoy music and playing packed with character and spirit."
- Classic FM

"The Purcell Quartet and their friends show here that the British manner of period performance still has plenty to offer. Their sound is sweet, well blended and deliciously light and airy and avoids any suggestion of clumsy interpretative exaggeration. Technically, too, they are well in command ..."
- Gramophone

This is the second volume of 17th century Italian works from The Purcell Quartet and His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornets, representing such composers as Marini, Stradella, Vitali and Rossi. The album features soloists Robert Woolley on organ and harpsichord, Jane Rogers on viola and Jakob Lindberg on chitarrone. His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts pioneered the rediscovery of 17th century ceremonial wind music played at coronations and other great occasions in the chapels and courts of England and Europe, while The Purcell Quartet has established itself as a leader in the area of Baroque chamber music.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
