William Boyce was among the most important English composers of the late Baroque period, 25 years younger than Handel, whom he outlived by twenty years. Boyce’s Eight Symphonies are the best known and most recorded of all his works. Adapted in the main from the instrumental movements of his numerous odes and theatrical works, the Symphonies combine the French overture and Italian sinfonia styles, displaying tuneful, engaging melodies and sprightly rhythms.
