Notes & Reviews:

Michael Chance has established a worldwide reputation as one of the foremost exponents of the male alto voice in all areas of the classical, and is in equal demand as an opera, concert and recording artist. The fifteen songs on this recording are memorable, not only by Purcell's music, but also by Chance's unique delivery of each of them.
