Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Skipton

Number of discs : 1

"This CD is a one hour, beautiful rendition of the original, where Purcell combines styles from lyrical ballads of the 16th and 17th centuries with masque traditions in English music, absorbing Italian and French influences from such as the early opera composer, Monteverdi, to produce a masterpiece of early opera (even though it was an unfinished piece). The intriguing and complex plot involves a Peruvian (Inca) princess, Orazia; a Mexican Queen, Zempoalla; and the Mexican heir to the throne, Montezuma. Based on a play by Sir Robert Howard with a libretto written by poet/playwright John Dryden, Purcell's romance is not the sentimental kind, but his music seems soar into the heavens, or maybe it's coming from heaven!"
