Notes & Reviews:

This release features two orchestral masterpieces by Henry Purcell, one of the Baroque period's most beloved composers. The Heritage collection from Alia Vox offers a fresh vision of the recordings that Jordi Savall, Montserrat Figueras and their ensembles Hesperion XX, La Capella Reial de Catalunya and Le Concert des Nations made under the Astree label. This unique discography features over sixty albums and includes some of the most important recordings from the early music renaissance. Alia Vox has remastered and edited these titles with the meticulous care that has been the label's hallmark since it was founded in 1998.

"Those who missed this disc first time round might find great pleasure in Savall's imaginative shaping of Purcell's musical moods." -Gramophone Magazine
