Have fun.

If you have any favorite Purcell recordings, you should list them. :) [Or have you already?]

Another vote for the viol fantasias from Phantasm. Sadly it's OOP though. Fretwork is a good alternative.
I'm also quite pleased with Herreweghe's Funeral Sentences.

If anyone is still interested, the last time I looked it was still available from HBdirect



Meanwhile, I just picked this up at BMG music:

The Fairy Queen - Gardiner, Monteverdi Ch., EBS.  Full texts available at the DG Alfresco website.  If they ask for a password, just enter archiv60. ;)

Some good information there, Bunny! A libretto would be nice as I don't have one. Downloaded music, don't you know, doesn't always come with notes.

This Purcellian thanks you.

Btw, it's not necessary to print out the notes in more than one language.  That way I saved a tree (or part of a tree).

Btw, the password works for all the Alfresco titles.  I put it in once, and I've been getting all of the notes... :D

True, but that was a long time ago, and maybe people forgot about them, right? :)
Just saying mind! ;)

Well, if we listen to our friend Que, we are to dredge up these old threads and use all this old information so there is no need to repeat.  ;D

I've enjoyed that one very much, a totally new side of Purcell for me! :)

For me that side is, er, FCUK ;) 

IMO, William Christie and his Les arts florissants do most excellently in that regard also.
