Album Summary

>Arne, Thomas [Composer] : Alfred, masque in 3 acts
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"'Alfred' belongs to the Purcellian category of the 'semi-opera'. It is classified as a masque...Except for a three-movement Overture and a March, plus the concluding 'Rule Britannia' Ode involving chorus, all the numbers are vocal solos...[McGegan] leads with vigor, and his period-instrument colors are quite vivid...Full texts and good notes complete the brightly recorded release. This is a true "must" for the collector of 18th Century music." -Barker, ARG
