|SONGS OF LOVE FROM MONTEVERDI TO PURCELL|
Charles Daniels is one of Britain’s greatest early music tenors, with more than 90 solo recordings to his credit. A recent recording with Fred Jacobs was described as ‘an amazing display of musicianship and subtlety’. In this absorbing tour of seventeenth century song they take us from the Italy of Monteverdi and Giovanni Girolamo Kapsberger to Restoration England. On the way they visit the French court and the beautiful airs of Michel Lambert, Lully’s father in law. Crossing the Channel, they explore the Cavalier songs of Nicholas Lanier, John Jenkins and the brothers Henry and William Lawes, ending with Matthew Locke and Henry Purcell.
