The Suite for Harpsichord and Saxophone presents a unique combination of sounds; the tonal contrasts heightening interest and musical cohesion. The Suite was conceived in the Baroque style, containing contrasting movements, interspersed by short recitatives on the solo harpsichord. An entertaining suite, approachable, but in no way superficial.

Recorded on CD, included here for free with the score and parts by the Northern Saxophone Quartet: Richard Ingham - Soprano, Julia Mills - Alto, Tony Davis - Tenor, Sarah Markham - Baritone, with Alan Cuckston - Harpsichord. Ask for 'The Cowles Collection' from Foxglove Audio: FOX088.
