About

Few of the many recordings devoted to Henry Purcell have succeeded in capturing all the richness and diversity of musical instruments of the late 17th century.

Here well-known pieces by Purcell take on an entirely new and unexpected colouring, while also serving to highlight the theatricality of the vocal airs.
