About

The tenth release on the Vivat label brings the latest in The Kingís Consortís acclaimed recordings of Henry Purcellís brilliant chamber music: the Twelve Sonatas of Three Parts. Proudly published by the young composer in 1683, Purcellís highly individual, extraordinarily inventive music combines French elegance, Italian vigour and delicious English melancholy with harmonic daring, extraordinary contrapuntal technique, ravishing dissonances and unique melodic invention.

The Kingís Consort holds a worldwide reputation as leading performers of Purcell. This new release follows the much-admired 2014 recording of the Ten Sonatas in Four Parts, and adds to The Kingís Consort's 25 recordings of the composerís music, which have won numerous international awards and been central in restoring Purcellís music to prominence.

Recorded in the glorious acoustic of St Johnís Church, Loughton.

Extensive presentation includes 44 page booklet with authoritative liner note in three languages by renowned Purcell expert and biographer Robert King, session photographs and reproductions from the 1683 first edition.
