Purcell
Hark! Hark! How all things; Crown the altar, deck the shrine; If music be the food of love; Not all my torments; O, O let me weep; I attempt from love’s sickness to fly; Olinda in the shades unseen; Urge me no more; Bess of Bedlam; Lovely, lovely Albina; Sweeter than roses; Dear pretty youth; When first Amintas sued for a kiss; The cares of lovers; Ye gentle spirits of the air; An evening Hymn

About

"The 16 Purcell songs and airs in this recital, some familiar, some rarely heard, are arranged in a pleasing order for continuous listening but, of course, can be selected or re-arranged at the touch of a CD button. Emma Kirkby's pure white tone is a joy throughout, her diction immaculate and her technique equal to all the demands of Purcell's many notes to a word... with nice decorations in repeated passages." - Gramophone.
