Written mostly during the last five years of his life, Purcell's Theatre Music is a rich and varied collection of some of the composer's finest melodic inspirations. They include solemn overtures, cheerful and sad songs, as well as delightful dances, either incorporated into the action of the play or performed as preludes and interludes. This first volume of the series includes many gems such as the erotic musical diversion in 'Amphitryon' which takes the form of a 'Pastoral Dialogue betwixt Thyrsis and Iris', the amorous shepherd begging for, and finally being granted, his heart's desire; and the series of dances in 'The Gordian Knot Unty'd', the most delightful of which are the 'Rondeau', 'Minuett' and the final 'Chacone'.
