Notes and Editorial Reviews
Two of the most accomplished vocal artists Canada has produced share their love of English song from Purcell's time: solo pieces and duets written for the theatre and for celebratory odes by the Orpheus Britannicus himself, as well as some tasty morsels by his greatest 'disciple', John Eccles. John Blow and Henry's younger brother, Daniel, also add more than their two-pence worth. A very worthy band of instrumentalists complete the programme with a choice selection of 'ayres' (in truth, instrumental suites) from two theatrical works to which Henry Purcell contributed.
