Notes & Reviews:

Purcell's devotional songs for three male voices remain shrouded in a certain mystery. Yet these meditations on the frailty of human existence are among his finest and most moving works. Purcell was gifted with a profound understanding of the emotions that can emerge from the union of text and music. La Rêveuse delve deeply into this anthemic music that builds so beautifully upon the traditions of the masterpieces that came before them.
