Appréciation d'ensemble / Overall evaluation :

Enter McCreesh and his team. They've rethought not just the score, but the instruments and practices of Purcell's day. In their King Arthur
Choruses are more vibrant, dance rhythms more percussive and solos more delicate than in any previous recording. Above all, McCreesh and his artists make us hear Purcell’s genius for word-setting…But the chief delight of this recording is its consort aesthetic: rather than elbowing forward through virtuosity, the artists exert themselves to work as a collective…another jewel in McCreesh’s crown.
