Delightful - why was this music so underrated?
03/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Conductor Peter Holman has done a tremendous service to English baroque music by researching, restoring, staging and recording some of the half-forgotten masterpieces by English composers of the 16th and 17th centuries. This disc is a collection of excerpts from compositions issued on other discs in the English Orpheus series. It's always good to have a collection as a way of introducing people to what's out there. Yet, if you can afford it, buy at least some of the complete volumes in this series. I would particularly recommend Dibdin's Ephesian Matron (the CD also contains two shorter works by the same composer); and Lampe's Pyramus & Thisbe."
