More Info:

The organist and harpsichordist John Worgan (1724-90) was one of the most highly respected musicians in the London of his day: Handel admired his playing, and Burney described him as 'very masterly and learned'. All that survives of his harpsichord music are a 'New Concerto', an independent Allegro non tanto and two collections, one of six sonatas and the other of thirteen teaching pieces, but they encompass an eclectic variety of styles and a surprising range of emotions - proud, spirited, witty, impulsive, touching, vivacious - making Worgan sound something like an English Domenico Scarlatti.
