Notes & Reviews:

The coronation of Charles II was a glorious celebration of the restoration of the monarchy following a coup d'ètat, civil war and an eleven-year government of the Commonwealth under Oliver Cromwell. Although contemporary statements concerning the music that was played are imprecise, Wim Becu and the ensemble Oltremontano have created this fascinating reconstruction of the ceremony, which portrays the King's arrival, his coronation in Westminster Abbey, the ensuing royal banquet and the royal masques that followed.

The Guardian, 12th February 2015
The mood is deadly serious: the idea of the Restoration as a kind of sensualist party came later...The performances, directed by Wim Becu, are consistently good; there's some lovely choral singing from Psallentes.
