Never before collected in one volume, the surviving solo songs and dialogues of this fascinating Restoration figure have been edited by Mark Levy, bass-viol virtuoso and one of Britain’s outstanding early music performers. This volume is a valuable companion to the larger works of Locke published in the Musica Britannica series, filling a serious gap for performers and scholars, as well as providing a selection of fine repertoire particularly suited to complement Purcell’s songs.
