Notes & Reviews:

"Barbara Hendricks' fascinating recital brings together some of the best-known songs and arias by the two great composers of vocal music in England in the Baroque era, Purcell and Handel... Even though this recital comes late in her career, it captures much of the magic and expressiveness of Hendricks' legendary voice. The conductorless Drottningholms Barockensemble accompanies her with clean, bright tone and astonishing responsiveness. The ensemble is in the spotlight for a sparkling performance of Handel's Terpsichore ballet suite. Arte Verum's sound is warm and clear, with excellent balance." -All Music Guide
