Emma Kirkby: The Complete Recitals - Songs & airs by Campion, Dowland, Morley, Lawes, Grandi, Monteerdi, Purcell, Bach, Handel, Mozart [12 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

This 12-CD collection brings together Emma Kirkby's complete L'Oiseau-Lyre recitals in a single set. The world's most popular period-instrument soprano, Kirkby's pure, crystalline sound defined how vocal music of the baroque and earlier eras should sound for a whole generation and beyond. Accompanied mainly by Anthony Rooley, the set features works by Purcell, Handel, Bach and Mozart as well as rarely recorded works by Edwards, Campion, Dowland, Morley, Ferrabosco and many more.
