Notes and Editorial Reviews

The legendary recording of a legendary work. It was with Henry Purcell, the greatest of 17th century English composers that the semi-opera, that specifically English genre, reached its apogee. With it a work like King Arthur and its famous 'Song of the cold' became one of the most famous compositions of the Baroque stage. This recording, conducted in 1978 by Alfred Deller, has become an enduring milestone in the history of the gramophone record. The legendary recording of a legendary work.
