Notes & Reviews:

Dorothee Mields is a popular guest at international festivals and has worked with conductors including Gustav Leonhardt, Stephen Stubbs, and Jos van Veldhoven. She has more than 40 recordings to her credit.

Gramophone Magazine
It's heartening to hear a German ensemble perform Purcell...with such conviction. Dorothee Mields is a fine soprano who is as confident in the melismas of "Sweeter than roses" as she is heartfelt in the broken phrases of 'O let me weep"; and, on the whole, her English is excellent.

International Record Review
Mields has barely a hint of an accent, and is marvellously expressive throughout, suggesting more than a passing familiarity with the English language...The instrumental playing...also has much to recommend it.

Notes & Reviews:
