CD Reviews

Excellent performance (not everybody will like this music)
Eytan Klausner | Chicagoland area | 06/12/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Henry Purcell is regarded as the most gifted of England composers of all times. His genius reveals in all his music - ceremonial, operas, semi-operas, secular songs, religious and instrumental. This series of King conducting Purcell's anthems and services follows up the success of King's odes and welcome songs recordings. While all the performances in this series are excellent it's the quality of the music that counts and number 7 of this series arguably includes the best music. The booklet enclosed with King's notes is also very illuminating. The rating of four stars and not five is because not all admirers of purcell will enjoy this music as much as they enjoy his operas, semi-operas and wellcome songs as it's more on the melancholic side."
