Notes and Editorial Reviews
"For all her Romantic swoopings and deliberations, de los Angeles has a wonderfully pure voice; and the rest of the cast – Peter Glossop as Aeneas, Heather Harper as Belinda, and a young Robert Tear as the Sailor – reads like a singers’ Who’s Who of the time. Barbirolli and the ECO show a keenness in the discovery of the Purcellian style that speaks vividly across three decades." -- Stephen Pettitt, BBC Music Magazine
