This review is from: Purcell - Dido & Aeneas / Bott, Kirkby, Ainsley, Thomas, AAM, Hogwood (Audio CD)
As a long-time fan of the authentic approach to baroque music and of Kirkby, Bott, Chance and Hogwood as interpreters, I went for this recording when I was working towards a performance of Dido and Aeneas. Charged with emotion, it does not disappoint. The singing has clarity and purity, beautifully balanced by sensitive instrumental playing. The additional MP3 download proved a great bonus when learning the work as I could go back and back over just a very few bars at a time.
