William WIlliams (? - 1701) was an English composer whose life is not known and his fame rests on his Opus 1 Trio Sonatas, 3 of them written for 2 violins and Basso Continuo, and 3 written for 2 recorders and Basso Continuo. Although influenced by Italian forms, they are still deep-rooted in the English tradition.

Williams was an obscure figure, who flourished in Britain around the end of the seventeenth century. His name, plus the fact that he dedicated his opus 1 to James, Earl of Anglesey, suggests inescapably that he was of Welsh origin, despite spending his working life in London.

His Sonata In Imitation Of Birds" (Opus 1 No. 6) is from Six Sonata's in Three Parts and was written by Williams in the time of Queen Anne. It is an early eighteenth-century English recorder music piece which would otherwise remain virtually unknown.

Although originally written for 2 treble recorders and Basso Continuo, I created this arrangement for Flute & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
