A PURCELL Collection

“every number here has something particularly arresting within it, all supported by persuasive and committed singing, and playing of intense charm.” --BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 *****

“Voces8 here make use of their intermediate size...to bring together what would normally be an unlikely Purcell vocal anthology...There are times when I feel that interpretative tricks are missed...but there is no doubting that this disc still offers a rich and enjoyable demonstration of Purcell's genius.” --Gramophone Magazine, July 2014

“Even if you have most of Purcell's music on disc in your collection you should not miss this 'sampler'. It includes some of the finest performances I have heard in recent years.” --MusicWeb International, 13th June 2014

“most agreeable, with many moments to savour along the way. The performances at times touch excellence…Voces 8 are at their best in more homophonic music, producing admirably balanced performances of considerable breadth and richness...an ideal introduction into at least part of his [Purcell’s] world.” --Early Music Today, Autumn 2014
