Notes & Reviews:

"Recorded in the late seventies, Airs and Duets became, to quote Lyrichord, 'one of the most popular Purcell recordings ever released.' It came out at a time when complete versions of the many works represented here were more difficult to come by than they are now...Many readers will want to replace their worn Lyrichord LP for this new disc, which comes with a Lyrichord sampler. The recorded sound is lustrous." -Ullman, Fanfare
