Notes & Reviews:

'This magnificent contribution...breaks new ground in scholarship, matching it with performances of the highest order...the elegy 'O Dive Custos,' with the astonishingly boy-like voices of Libby Crabtree and Carys Lane, is the unforgettable high point in this superb tribute to Purcell and his Queen.'-BBC Music
