CD Reviews

Honestly, you WILL enjoy this music!

"During the Purcell festival year awhile back I was able to see a live performance of this work with some extra narration and period dance. It was a great evening. The only blemish was that Emma Kirkby was unable to sing that night. However, the performance was wonderful.This recording is quite good and there are wonderfully great melodies such as track 10 "I Come to Sing Great Zempoalla's Story". Then there is snake hissing on track 11 "What Flatt'ring noise is this". The instrumental and dance music is simply fun.This work was never finished by Purcell, but what we have we get to treasure.Yes, I am a Purcell nut, but he has always given me great reason to be."
Not your everyday fare, but maybe it should be

"I can't get over how compelling this music is. The earlier reviewer mentioned 'What flatt'ring noise is this', and there are many other gems in here as well. The overall effect is terrifically upbeat; the performances have a great musical drive and the performers clearly enjoy themselves. Well worth your time."
