It is perhaps in these Fantasias for viols that Purcell's music is revealed in its most intimate expression. A real peak of polyphony, with which only the 'Musical Offering' and the 'Art of Fugue' by J S Bach deserve to be compared. This is incredible work of a young man of 21 years, on the edge of his only too brief but meteoric career.

Sit Fast is incomparable in this music: all muted colours and arranged with admirable subtlety.
