Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Highly desirable additions to any Purcell collection." - The Times, U.K.

"For those to whom Purcell's unfailing sensitivity and inventiveness in the setting of English texts is a constant miracle, the problem with this series is knowing where to start." - Gramophone (From an introduction to the Purcell recordings by the King's Consort.)
