Notes & Reviews:

" ... first-hand knowledge of the full literary context is reflected in the aplomb, confidence and sheer artistry of Christie's characterizations ... All the best numbers are magically conjured, atmospheric and distinctive: 'Fairest isle' is given a show stopping, moving rendering by Veronique Gens. ... The soloists are of a very high quality and the articulation of the orchestral numbers is often revelatory. Arguably, this is the most exciting and accomplished new Purcell recording to have appeared during an abundant tercentenary year." - Gramophone
