Alfred Deller - The Voice of Purcell - 1979 saw the death of one of the leading players in the baroque revolution. Undoubtedly the most famous countertenor of the twentieth century, Alfred Deller's performances convinced audiences that, three centuries earlier, Purcell had somehow composed songs with him in mind. His inimitable timbre perfectly showcased repertory that had long been gathering dust in libraries. Now, 40 years after his death, harmonia mundi has meticulously remastered the original tapes, bringing the art of Alfred Deller's alive once more.
