7CD with bonus CD-ROM


The solos, mostly by Deller himself with lute accompaniment by Desmond Dupré, are wonderfully fresh and immediate in sound, with no ambience that spoils the feeling of having the singer almost at one's side in the room. The catches, glees and part-songs are similarly intimate and natural, sympathetic without being reverberant.
