England, My England / Tony Palmer's Film About Henry Purcell [DVD]

Album Summary

>Purcell, Henry : Work(s)

Notes & Reviews:

Tony Palmer directs this prize-winning film about the great English composer Henry Purcell. Very little is known about his life, but the script written by Charles Wood and the late John Osborne solves this problem by launching a group of actors in the 1960s on a voyage of discovery into the 1660s & late-17th century England. But it is Purcell's music which is the driving force of the drama, with a stunning soundtrack conducted by John Eliot Gardiner.
