"Drawn irresistibly into matters of court, church, and theater, the reader quickly realizes that Keates possesses that gift essential for a historian of any discipline: the ability to make other times and places live. His enthusiasm alone makes one want to listen to Purcell works of every stamp."--Opera Quarterly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
