    The music on this CD is outstanding, but the selection of songs

    The music on this CD is outstanding, but the selection of songs was such that there is no singing/opera in any of these tracks!  If you are looking for a
    purely instrumental Purcell then this is it.  If you are looking for the hauntingly beautiful singing, then go elsewhere.
