5.0 out of 5 stars Superb playing by Mark Bennett and Michael Laird 30 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In my mind this is one of a group of CDs of particular interest from the many really excellent recordings on the Helios label by Peter Holman/Roy Goodman and The Parley of Instruments, others that complement each other superbly, being of a similar period, include Italian Baroque Trumpet Music and Muffat's Armonico Tributo sonatas (strings only).

This is a collection of important early trumpet writing with a focus on the English court, under the influence of Vincenzo Albrici (his work at the Swedish Court is also available on Helios, by The Parley). The composers represented here are Corbett, Purcell, Finger, Croft, Eccles, Barrett and Paisible.

The playing by The Parley of Instruments is, as always, outstanding, as is that of the trumpet soloists Mark Bennett and Michael Laird as well as solo contributions from Frank de Bruine on oboe and Judy Tarling on violin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen and Enjoy! 29 April 2013
By J. Cyphers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The contents of this disk provide an overview of music in England between Purcell and the Handel's arrival in London, as seen through music for trumpet(s), either with orchestra or in chamber settings.

Given the limitations of the natural trumpet, don't expect a lot of harmonic complexity, but there's plenty to enjoy here, and the selections by William Croft and John Eccles particularly show that Purcell's competitors and survivor's were composers of no mean ability. It was useful to include Purcell's sinfonia from King Arthur for solo trumpet, oboe, violin and continuo to compare/contrast with chamber pieces by Godfrey Finger that were possibly inspired by it. There are delicious bits throughout, such as the little "Scotch Tune" from William Corbett's suite, that will stick in yoiur head for days.

Peter Holman and The Parley of Instruments perform with their usual clarity and vigor.
