The 17th Century composer John Hingston may not be very well-known, but this piece for cornetto, sackbut and organ is a prime example of the English, pre-Baroque style. Presented here in the modern instrumental equivalents, namely trumpet and trombone, this piece features excellent part-writing for the two melodic instruments. The trumpet pierces clearly as the trombone offers deep, resonant commentary on the melody. Hingston's Fantasia For Cornetto, Sackbut, And Organ Continuo is an engaging piece that is representative of its era.
