The work is also referred to as Opus 1 No. 7, and was first published in or shortly after 1726-in a collection of twelve sonatas titled Sonates pour un Traversiere un Violon ou Hautbois Con Basso Continuo Composées par G. F. Handel-purportedly in Amsterdam by Jeanne Roger, but now shown to have been a forgery by the London publisher John Walsh

In fact this entire album was very "easy" on my ears containing wonderful works played very beautifully by all involved.

The three 18th century sonatas on this album display the diversity of styles across Europe in the baroque period. William Croft was the organist at the Chapel Royal and at Westminster Abbey, and a distinguished composer of church music.

Composer(s) George Frideric Handel. Artist(s) Richard Egarr - harpsichord, organ. A second solo album and a second Gramophone 'Choice' accolade which was widely acclaimed as a benchmark recording. Her virtuoso playing can be heard on numerous recordings, ranging from the medieval period to the present day. Pamela is perhaps best known for her baroque playing with the Palladian Ensemble (with whom she has recorded nine acclaimed albums), but also as a soloist with the English Concert and many other eminent UK orchestras.
