This review is from: Purcell: Queen Mary Funeral Music/Come Ye Sons of Art (Audio CD)
The music of Purcell is an essential element of listening to British music, the cornerstone, and this CD provides a good starting point. Purcell is at his best as a composer and the performances are first class at a very reasonable price: recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purcell - A great english composer, 29 Feb 2008

This review is from: Purcell: Queen Mary Funeral Music/Come Ye Sons of Art (Audio CD)
This is a superb CD - showing off Purcell's marvellous diverse talent for composing superb music for all occasions - the first part is celebratory, with bright voices at a lively pace. The second part is music for Queen Mary's funeral and is contemplative, solemn and majestic. I loved it - as I love all Purcell music. Glad to hear Classics FM play him more nowadays - previously hardly ever. Anyone who enjoys music by Handel will enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Purcell: Queen Mary Funeral Music/Come Ye Sons of Art (Audio CD)
The performance (and recording) on this CD are first rate. "Come ye" can sound over familiar, but here there is a real sense of enjoyment. The Funeral music is a real treat, especially the trombone quartets. There is a real feeling of grieving, without letting the music become totally sombre.
If you do not know this music, this is a good Cd to start with; if you do know it, this will give you new insights.

Purcell who lived so long ago sounds great even in this day and age. Queen Mary was the wife of King Billy. He caused a lot of bother here in Ireland!
