Henry Purcell: The Fairy Queen
Based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream , this work by one of England's greatest composers features all the fine qualities for which Henry Purcell is celebrated - wonderful invention, keen dramatic instinct, and lively characterizations. Highlights include the lovely soprano air, O let me weep , a series of songs about the seasons, and the magnificent bass solo, Next winter comes slowly . Reproduced from an early authoritative score, it is certain to be prized by musicians and music lovers alike.
