Synopsis

Product Description
This recording of duets by the great composers of the Restoration is one of the gems of Hyperion's catalogue. It features the celebrated countertenors James Bowman and Michael Chance at the peak of their powers, and the combination of their two voices with the sympathetic accompaniment of The King's Consort creates something uniquely glorious. Purcell was a countertenor himself and in his writing for the voice produced some of his most felicitous music. John Blow, Purcell's predecessor and successor as organist of Westminster Abbey, reached his compositional zenith with the extended duet on the subjects of Purcell's tragic early death and inextinguishable influence.
