Henry Purcell: The English Opheus
Colin Booth, harpsichord - [SBCD-205]

Colin Booth plays two instruments, a harpsichord he built in 2003 and based on an 18th-century German instrument, brass strung, and "distinctly related to surviving early English examples," Booth writes. The other instrument is a spinet Booth built in 2004 as a copy of an anonymous Italian spinet of the same period. He writes that it, "has a similar timbre to some English examples, but a particularly resonant quality . . . it belies its sonority: it is only just over a metre long." The works are:
