About

Beauteous Softness is La Nuova Musicaís third Pentatone album, presenting restrained yet profoundly moving songs by seventeenth-century English composers such as Purcell, Blow, Humfrey and Webb. The album also showcases the rich musical context that provided the foundation from which Purcell rose to prominence. David Bates and his players perform them together with Tim Mead, one of todayís most outstanding countertenors.

La Nuova Musica and its artistic director David Bates are among the most exciting Baroque ensembles of today. Their Pentatone debut with Gluckís Orfeo ed Euridice was both BBC Music Magazineís Choice and Gramophone Editorís Choice in December 2019, while Handelís Unsung Heroes (2021) was BBC Music Magazine Recording of the Month and selected among the Best Classical Music Albums of 2022 by Gramophone. Tim Mead returns to the label after having starred in a complete recording of Handelís Messiah (2020).
