    Henry Eccles (1670–1742) was an English composer.  He was the son of the composer Soloman Eccles and composer John Eccles was his brother.  He moved from England to Paris where he became a member of King Louis' (XIV) band.  The Sonata in G minor was one of twelve sonatas he composed that were all heavily influenced by Giovanni Valentini.

    Although initially composed for violin, the popular viola version was arranged by P. Klengel

    The lovely Sonata in G Minor by Eccles is arguably his most notable work. Interestingly, musicologists have revealed that the second movement of the sonata (Corrente) was actually written by Italian violinist-composer Francesco Bonporti. Henry Eccles wrote many of his compositions while living in Paris.
