Notes & Reviews:

While much of the music for "The Tempest" has been generally ascribed to Purcell, it is now widely supposed that only one of the songs is his. There are no doubts, however, about the other works recorded here. Whoever it is who penned "The Tempest" produced a brilliant, colorful masterpiece. This is a superb performance, up at the top rank of Naxos' many great achievements. The soloists are splendid without exception, and the Aradia Baroque Ensemble under Kevin Mallon is superb.
