Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
No surprises on this set: Gardiner & his cohorts deliver their high standards. The obvious standout is the second disc as it couples the Birthday Ode for Queen Mary with her Funeral Music, both well-known compositions. The contrast is very moving. Playing & singing is sublime, sound crystal clear.

Solid box to have, especially for a Purcell newcomer. And anyone with a soft spot for parrots!
