All but five of the songs on this recording were written by Henry Purcell (1659-1695), an exact and proper tribute not only to the sheer excellence of his craft and imagination, but also to his continually fresh appeal to modern ears. Purcell's fame rested partly on his contributions to the London stage, for which he wrote overtures, act tunes, dance music and songs in the later years of his career; in greater part, though, he was esteemed by connoisseurs for the nobility of his sacred settings, for his contrapuntal genius and for the intensity of his expressive ornamentation.-Colin Tilney (1990)
