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.”
