5.0 out of 5 stars Henry Purcell + Andreas Scholl; at last
Finally... songs by the greatest English composer, sung by the greatest "English" countertenor. With this CD of secular and operatic arias by Henry Purcell, Andreas Scholl has returned to his "erste Liebe". The selection includes many of the best-known and best-loved songs, including "Music for a while" and "If music be the food of love", both of which AS imbues with all...

3.0 out of 5 stars wonderful music
Lovely CD. Only reason scored it down was because there is a lot of orchestra and not so much of Andreas.
Love the counter tenor voice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Purcell O Solitude, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: O Solitude (Audio CD)
I had looked forward to this very much and it started off very well. Wonderful voice
and not the usual orchestra background, but still very punchy.

Sadly there was clicking on my particular Cd by track 12 and then mis- reading and
it stopped before the final songs could be heard.

I lead a busy life and could not be bothered to send it back, so still listen to half the
CD, which is good, but how I wish I could hear it all without clicks and mis tracking.I

will someday buy it again in a high st. shop.

Scholl has a truly beautiful voice for Purcell.

3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity, 25 April 2011
This review is from: O Solitude (Audio CD)
I awaited this release with great anticipation,only to be sadly disappointed.It has to be Scholl's poorest release to date.
His voice ,whilst usually controlled is all over the place and his diction makes me cringe.The only redeeming feature of this release being the instrumentalists who perform Mr Purcell's works admirably.
Until David Daniels releases a similar set,save your money or alternatively invest in recordings by James Bowman and Alfred Deller.
