Vox Luminis - Purcell: King Arthur - Gramophone

[Vox Luminis] harvest the fruits of Purcell and Dryden’s collaborative imagination with affectionate lucidity. The band never sounds as small as it actually is …The playing has admirable finesse … The Saxons’ heathen sacrifices in Act 1 flow with unerring pacing and harmonic shaping … It has been decades since a recording of any of Purcell’s operas as enjoyable as this.
