Notes & Reviews:

"All this is Purcell singing-and just plain singing-of the highest order. [Gauvin] is given pungent and affectionate support by Colpron's ensemble of 13 players, a little thin sometimes as a theater "orchestra", but gamely spirited. Excellent sonics. Full texts with French translations. When the Martians land and admit they have never heard of Henry Purcell, this is probably the disc I will give them as an introduction." -ARG
