William Jackson of Exeter (1730–1803) – a painter and writer as well as a composer – has been, until now, something of a hidden treasure. As Timothy Roberts writes in his introduction to this first album of Jackson’s music, ‘his songs are rooted in English traditions, and if his harmonies rarely move beyond those of Corelli and Handel, Jackson’s emphasis on sensibility also brings hints of early Romanticism’. ‘His melodies were pure and natural’, as one contemporary observed, resulting in music that is both elegant and charming.
