Notes & Reviews:

"The remarkably blended, spirited performance by the Red Byrd vocal ensemble is a delight, and the Parley of Instruments charmingly captures the spirit of the age." -Opera News

'These are by far the best recordings of these wonderful works to have come my way ... exactly as Purcell must have envisaged it' (Classic CD)

'"Recommended" is far too mild; this is an absolute must-have for anyone irretrievably bereft of a musical soul' (Fanfare, USA)
