Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This well-paced, well-cast performance is probably the best all-around period-instrument Dido available. Christopher Hogwood offers a version that might have been performed at court, using 17th-century casting conventions. Tenor John Mark Ainsley copes well with the role of Aeneas, nicely balancing a war hero's strength and a suitor's courtliness. Catherine Bott as Dido uses a nice variety of vocal colors and combines a properly royal dignity with purity appropriate to Purcell's music. Emma Kirkby (who sang Dido on the first period-instrument recording for Andrew Parrott) makes a wonderfully giddy Belinda, and her ornamentation is delightful; Julianne Baird as the Second Woman is luxury casting. Following period convention, David Thomas sings the Sorceress vividly, using both broad comedy and believable malevolence. --Matthew Westphal
