This second Purcell release by Retrospect Trio has been hotly anticipated since its debut recording, a finalist at the 2009 Gramophone Awards, was released; BBC Music Magazine described the follow up as "a mouthwatering matter of urgency. Continuing the composer's trio sonata texture found in Ten Sonatas in Four Parts, Purcell's later set is much more forward-looking to the later Baroque rather than taking inspiration from the old style contrapuntal models found in the earlier set. This recording was nominated for a 2012 BBC Music Magazine Award.

There are two collections of Purcell trio sonatas: 12 Sonatas in Three Parts (published 1683), and 10 Sonatas in Four Parts (published after Purcell's death in 1697). This recording explores the timeless beauty of Purcell's first set of sonatas including the magnificent Sonata IX, known as "The Golden Sonata". impeccable technique. This is definitely an album that benefits from listening on headphones. However, I found that the harpsichord is hard to hear when it’s played; some sonatas have harpsichord and others organ. In the latter, the organ gives a very solid underpinning to the music, but the sonatas with harpsichord sound more like string trios. This wonderful recording highlights all that is great about Purcell’s music, in small-scale works that delight in inventiveness. The luscious sound makes it a pleasure to listen to.
