Henry Purcell is regarded as the first great master of English Baroque music, and his works find their best interpreters today in Andrew Parrott and his ensemble. Purcell's oeuvre features splendid works written for festive occasions at court as well as dramatic operas and melancholy lute songs. This recording offers a representative cross-section of the composer's work, whose popularity remains unbroken.

“The Theatre Music is a little stiff, but a tidy Bell Anthem, handsome masque from The Fairy Queen and an impeccable Close Thine Eyes make a persuasive Purcell taster.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

The Choir of Westminster Abbey under their inspirational director James O’Donnell delve into the Abbey’s vaults for this latest fascinating disc.

The triumphant mood of the Restoration required much glorious liturgical music, and the Abbey was home to some of the greatest composers and performers of the age. This recording presents music likely to have been sung by—and in some cases, almost certain to have been written for—the Choir of Westminster Abbey during the late 1670s and early 1680s. They sing four canticles from the compendious Service in B flat by Henry Purcell, together with psalmody in reconstructed contemporary style, and anthems and motets by Purcell and his contemporary John Blow, who famously both preceded and succeeded Purcell as Organist of the Abbey.

“The Abbey choir, under James O’Donnell, conveys the thrill of Purcell’s music and the whole disc is marked by crucial attention to the articulation of words and to the careful balancing of choral sonorities.” The Telegraph, 9th April 2010 ****

“Throughout every work O'Donnell's direction is alive to the sophisticated vocal layering, and ever attentive to the meaning of the words - an innate musicality echoed in Robert Quinney's 'voluntary contributions', despatched with nimble virtuosity and a beguiling shapeliness.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2010 ****

“Overall, it's a surprisingly varied programme...The organ voluntaries add spice to the mix, bearing as some of them do the stamp of Italianate influence.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2010

Oxford Camerata, Jeremy Summerly

“I would say that any disc which offered such a 24-carat Purcell selection in performances even half as good as these would be hard to resist.” Gramophone Magazine

“this glorious, darkly intense funeral music is given an outstandingly fresh and clear rendition, vividly recorded, matching even the finest rival versions. The sharpness of focus in the sound means that Purcell's adventurous harmonies with their clashing intervals are given extra dramatic bite in these dedicated performances, marked by fresh, clear soprano tone in place of boy trebles.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

William Whitehead (The 1723 Abraham Jordan Organ of St George’s, Southall)

The first recording of the historic 1723 Abraham Jordan organ in St George’s Church, Southall, completely restored to its original specification by Mander Organs in 2009.

One of only a handful of instruments surviving from this period in the UK, this delightful early eighteenth-century organ has a surprising wealth of colour and characteristic sonorities, including one of the world’s earliest examples of a ‘swelling organ’.

Critically-acclaimed organist, William Whitehead, presents a broad survey of Restoration and Georgian English organ music appropriate to the restored instrument, and includes many works new to the catalogue.
