Purcell wrote so much in so many different spheres of musical activity that it is easy to forget that one of his main tasks was to be a royal composer, to provide music for the occasions of State in Westminster Abbey, just as the Gabrielis had done for the Doge at St Mark’s, or Lully for the French monarchs at Versailles. One of the most notable – and highly praised – accounts of Purcell’s choral music came from the Choir of St. John’s College, Cambridge, conducted by George Guest. They made three records for Argo – in 1964, 1972 and 1975 – covering Purcell’s Music for the Chapel Royal, a selection of Verse Anthems, the Te Deum and Jubilate and other works. The three are collected on a 2CD set. Texts are included in the booklet.

BBC Music Magazine

October 2012

****

“Vibrant readings of some of Purcell's best loved choral works unalloyed by 'authentic' prissiness”

Gramophone Magazine

“The impact of Inia Te Wiata's entry in They that go down to the sea in ships is almost sensational … Outstanding among the soloists is the counter-tenor, Charles Brett. The orchestral playing is sprightly, the choral singing polished”

Gramophone Magazine

“The performances are excellent. James Bowman is in splendid voice and he is well matched by Charles Brett (in this music, the others are really a supporting cast to the countertenors). The orchestra plays with its usual sensitivity of tone and nuance. As for Mr. Guest, he understands the Funeral Sentences in no mean manner, for it is easy to overdo the pain or to adopt the stiff upper lip, yet he manages to combine the two in goodly proportion”
