PURCELL: Ode for St. Cecilia's Day / Te Deum

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
1995 marked the three-hundredth anniversary of the death of Purcell, and during that year numerous performances of his music were given in the U.K., yet one of the most important events was the discovery of a long lost work, The Noise of Foreign Wars, which was performed with the present artists who now give the première recording. Yet another world first for Naxos, the label which is bringing an ever increasing number of premières to the recording scene.

The remainder of the disc is an ideal entry point to the music of Purcell as it contains both his orchestral and his choral music.

It is performed by a relatively new period instrument group, the Orchestra of the Golden Age, with their specialist choir and a group of soloists, dedicated to the promotion of music from this period.

The disc also features one of the great virtuosos of the natural trumpet, and for those who are unfamiliar with this instrument it has no valves, the notes having to be conjured up by the musicians work within the mouthpiece of the trumpet. This short work provides David Staff with an ideal opportunity to demonstrate his skill.
