CC1021


This disc explores the music of an all-but-forgotten Englishman, Stephen Paxton, who flourished in London in the late 18th century. Famous as a composer of glees and catches he wrote a large number of works for his own instrument, the cello. Mostly recorded here for the first time Sebastian Comberti brings these forgotten works to light accompanied by a continuo team of Ruth Alford and Maggie Cole, with The Pantheon Band.
