Notes and Editorial Reviews

This anthology might carry the subtitle of Weelkes' Greatest Hits: from 'Thule' to 'When David Heard', the best known pieces are all here, and there is no better rounded overview of his music than this... (The Consort's) lighter touch has considerable charm in the madrigals and canzonets such as 'As Vesta Was' or 'Harke All Ye Lovely Saints', and in the songs of mourning they find many affecting touches. — Gramophone This anthology might carry the subtitle of Weelkes' Greatest Hits: from 'Thule' to 'When David Heard', the best known pieces are all here, and there is no better rounded overview of his music than this...
