Catalogue Number: 07K022
Description: Although unknown to us, Nares still rated a full page in the next-to-most recent Grove, primarily for his anthems. These Lessons (1747) are in what the soloist here describes as "Anglo-Scarlatti" style, part of a flood of English keyboard compositions inspired by Scarlatti's torrential runs, daredevil handcrossings and erratic passagework which arrived with the London publication of his Essercizii in 1739. Julian Perkins (harpsichords).
