Notes and Editorial Reviews


This release joins a surprisingly small company entirely devoted to the work's of Purcell's teacher and friend, and makes a welcome sight. For many, getting to know these pieces will be persuasion enough, but the performances complete the seduction with their excellent playing and singing, vigorous but tastefully realized sense of style, and firmly-shaped contours and effective illustrative touches.
