5.0 out of 5 stars A bargain CD for lovers of English choral music February 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In addition to Henry Purcell's edifying choral anthems, this CD also contains his music composed on the occasion of Queen Mary's death. Listen to this music with your eyes closed and imagine the royal funeral procession to Westminister Abbey on that cold March morning in 1695 (a place that a 36 year old Purcell himself would rest 8 months later); it is an epiphany! For movie buffs, the funeral march (Z. 860A; played wonderfully by the Oxford Camerata brass) was featured in Anthony Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange". If you enjoy Purcell's works or choral music in general, you should definitely make a modest purchase and get this wonderful CD for your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all good! July 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a fantastic collection of Purcell's greatest choral works, wonderfully sung by the Oxford Camerata. My favourites: 'Jehova, quam multi sunt' (a fine example of Renaissance-inspired Baroque choral writing), 'Lord, how long wilt thou be angry?', and the more well-known 'Hear my prayer, O Lord'. However, the entire album is full of authentic little treasures which continue to marvel. A great recording for any classical collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome performance June 8, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
This compilation of music is enough to get an atheist to believe in a higher power -- it's that amazing.

The music and lyrics are awe-inspiring, and this performance is made all the better by the Oxford Camerata.

I've had an opportunity to listen to other versions of this music (by Choir of Clare College and by Arcadia Players), and I am convinced that the performance by the Oxford Camerata is by far the best. Their timing and their voices are perfect.

I've been wearing out this album both on my laptop and in my car for the last six months or so, and I see no signs of stopping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption & Compassion September 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
From the opening in the warm acoustic of Hertford College, Oxford, the beautifully blended voices of the Oxford Camerata, led by Andrew Carwood and Michael McCarthy in this piece, radiate a serene compassion, and an almost certain redemption. Whether you believe or not, music this beautiful caresses away the stress and disappointment of our lives. The album is really in two parts: a collection of Purcell's Anthems and Organ Music, followed by his Music on the Death of Queen Mary. The latter obviously is the more integrated and developed piece, and burns with a grave and stately sincerity, crowned by the radiant singing of Carys-Anne Lane in the Queen's Epicedium. This is a memorable and generous collection of Purcell's work, beautifully arranged by Jeremy Summerly, and a real bargain.
