Hitherto unpublished, the four trio sonatas and two fivepart sonatas by William Croft, which came to light in 1977, are among the most interesting and rewarding of English chamber works to have been written in the period between the trio sonatas of Purcell and those of Boyce and Arne. Possibly first heard at the concerts of the musical smallcoals man, Thomas Britton, they are complemented by six sonatas for two solo recorders, and three violin sonatas that are amongst the earliest printed works in this genre by an English composer.
