This is the 10th release on the respected Vivat label.
It features the King’s Consort (leader Robert King) with its reputation as the leading performer of music by the famous British composer Henry Purcell (1659-95).
This group has made 25 previous recordings of music by Purcell, which have won numerous awards, encouraging prominence of the works so they can be appreciated again four centuries later.
Of course the 10 four-part works are performed in exquisitely beautiful style.
The musicians revel in the music, displaying its delights and occasional pathos, adorned with their own virtuosity.
Italian-Dutch Cecilia Bernardini and Welsh Huw Daniel are the two violinists, Japanese Reiko Ichise plays bass viol.
