“enjoyable anthology edition showing Deller at his finest. The others are good too, especially Gerald English … warm, expressively played instruments” (Penguin Guide)
“ Vanguard’s reissues of Purcell, the composer most closely associated with Deller … the purity of tone, the extraordinary resonance of lower and middle notes, the technical skill and sensitivity of his singing all remain … Stylish playing by George Malcolm and others (including young Neville Marriner) … celebrated not only Deller himself but his generation who did so much to bring Purcell out to reveal his genius” (Gramophone)
