4.0 out of 5 stars High standards don't always work, 1 Jun 2011
This review is from: Bach Early Cantatas, Volume 1 / Purcell Quartet (Audio CD)
Four brilliant soloists in a one-voice-per-part performance. The standard of playing and singing is perfect throughout. However, I have one big reservation. Emma Kirkby is a wonderful soloist at any time. Unfortunately it is her capacity as a soloist which mars this performance. Her highly distinctive voice can be heard above and beyond the other singers in the choruses. I would have preferred a different soprano here, one whose voice would have blended better with the others. For technical excellence, yes, this a lovely disc, but for depth and emotion I would pick another.
