Henry Purcell remains unequalled in the sensitivity with which he sets the English language. His music often combines the decorum of the French style with the rhetorical exuberance of the Italian style – while remaining quintessentially English. This programme celebrates Purcell’s florid qualities with a surprising array of vocal and instrumental works.
