Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Perfect Purcell on a superlative release chock-full of treasures. Versatile Dutch baritone Maarten Koningsberger and refined lutenist Fred Jacobs here join in the Henry Purcell 350th birthday celebrations with a beautiful recital of solo songs drawn from across the English Orpheus’ all-too-brief career.

"Koningsberger’s English pronounciation is cristal-clear and virtually accentless. Add to all the aforementioned Jacob’s utterly sympathetic theorbo accompaniments and you have one of the best Purcell recitals to have hit the shelves in years.” — William yeoman, Gramophone, ‘Editor’s Choice’
