PURCELL (THE BEST OF)

Recognised during his lifetime as a genius, Henry Purcell subsequently influenced countless classical composers from Handel to Britten. This delightful assortment of his best-known works includes the beautiful yet melancholy ‘Dido’s Lament’ from his perennially popular opera Dido and Aeneas and the joyful Jubilate Deo for choir and orchestra, as well as some of his instrumental works; the elegant Fantazia in C minor is a particularly exquisite example of the English composer’s mastery.
