    Cheers MIKE.

    How many roads must a man walk down ... ... before he admits he's lost?

    Purcell at his best - sprightly and elegant. Incidental music from Abdelazer or The Moor's Revenge:

    The attractively-named English baroque composer Richard Mudge. He has descendants who are interested in his music & our local baroque ensemble often perform his works.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Avison

    Charles Avison was another English baroque composer, best known, however, for his adaptations of Italian baroque composers such as Scarlatti. His works are regularly performed by our local HIP baroque ensemble.

    Here's one of his arrangements. It's sprightly and nimble and carries me along with it.

    Crispian Steele-Perkins is a great baroque trumpeter that we've seen two or three times playing with our local baroque ensemble. He is very funny as well as being a fab musician. Here's an interview he did which I think is very interesting.

    Since Handel chose to live and write in music, I count him as an adopted countryman.

    Here's his gorgeous Water Music.

    Another beautiful piece of English baroque that I've known since I was a child - the Trumpet Voluntary by lovely doomed Jeremiah Clarke.

    And here's another piece of Jeremiah Clarke's work that I discovered just now. His 'ecossaise' from the suite in C - isn't YouTube wonderful.

    'Ah Belinda' from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Beautiful & triste.

    Ella, that is really a fascinating find, which got me searching for more and found a short biography and more of his works:-
