The playing is admirably neat - intonation virtually flawless, ensemble taut, and decorations stylish.” 

The young, vibrant musicians of The Parnassian Ensemble spotted a gap in the early music market and have filled it with flair, producing a debut album of original music for two recorders and continuo from the time of Queen Anne, most of it not previously available on disc. The only ensemble in England concentrating on this repertoire, the Parnassians relish in introducing to audiences this fine, original, early eighteenth-century English recorder music which would otherwise remain virtually unknown. The enthusiastic reception led them to commit their expertise to disc. Since its formation in 1998, The Parnassian Ensemble has gained a reputation for its virtuostic performances and innovative programming.
