Listening to these two wonderful works composed by the great Henry Purcell to late 1600s is extremely delicious. Wonderful melodies, excellent work of counterpoint and excellent solos for baritone, soprano and countertenors who bring us to mind the wonderful arias of Handel great years later. The talented director John Eliot Gardiner, great erudite of the Baroque art, gives us these versions worked very well. The soloists are really excellent: the soprano Felicity Lott, Charles Brett and John Williams countertenors and the baritone Thomas Alles and the excellent Monteverdi Choir are perfects. The Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary is extremely overwhelming. Excellent musical gems of English Baroque.
