Notes & Reviews:

This mid-priced reissue in the hmGold series features two major recordings of Henry Purcell by Philippe Herreweghe. The acclaimed conductor leads the Collegium Vocale Gent in performances of the composer's two odes for St Cecilia's Day and the Funeral Sentences. From the small forces of Welcome to all the Pleasures to the vocal and orchestral pyrotechnics of Hail! Bright Cecilia, Herreweghe and his choir bring a freshness and clarity to all the music heard here.

International Record Review, September 2014
The sheer vitality-and the range of colour and character that Philippe Hereweghe and his musicians draw out of this music- makes these performances irresistible ... beautifully sung and played.
