I had been looking for years for a good CD of Purcell's instrumemntal music, as opposed to his vocal, choral and chamber works. There are few such CDs on the market and I find this the best. The music is performed by an ensemble of young musicians who bring a great deal of exuberance and vitality to the music. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who likes the composer's instrumental works more, perhaps, than his anthems and other choral works. This CD is no longer made - that probably explains the high price. Amazon has good used ones.

I like the type of music. However, I got it to find the dance song on Becomming Jane & 3 other movies. The very last song was it, but it was much faster & had more to it. I prefer the slow version. That is why I bought it.
