With Erica Eloff and Matthew Brook in the title roles and accompanied on period instruments by Interplay. Alongside Purcell’s famous entertainment, the courtly masque Dido and Aeneas, we present much rarer music – the best of his writing for the Chapel Royal. While unaccompanied works such as Thou Knowest Lord and Hear my Prayer are regulars on cathedral music lists, the greatest church music was accompanied by string orchestra.
