Notes & Reviews:

"Catherine Bott's Dido is perfectly rendered as part of an integrated recorded sound in a performance that's breathtakingly well nuanced. Emma Kirkby's Belinda is similarly finely turned In addition, John Mark Ainsley provides a heroic Aeneas in what is a challenging role because of its apparent lack of guts... the project's ultimate hero is Christopher Hogwood, whose sympathy for every twist and turn of Purcell's delightful opera is total." -BBC Music Magazine
