Product description

Review

"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.

About the Author

The distinguished writer Jonathan Keates (b.1946) has written several acclaimed biographies and travel books, and his novel Allegro Postillions won both the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Hawthornden Prize. Keates also reviews regularly for the Sunday Telegraph and teaches English at the City of London School. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
