Originally published in 1750 when the composer was 60, this collection of double fugues clearly owes much to Handel’s set of six voluntaries or fugues of 1735; the subjects are announced within a few beats of each other. These six pieces are less torturously chromatic than Roseingrave’s own set of Voluntarys and Fugues of 1728 and more rigorously contrapuntal, although parts do still appear and disappear at will. None exceeds three pages, and while a few awkward hand shifts are tricky, they are not over difficult when taken at a sensible tempo to bring out the figuration; they will make useful concluding voluntaries. The printing and editing is of the usual high standard expected from David Patrick, with editorial interventions and changes being in a smaller font. John Collins
