This is the second volume of Purcell's theatre music from Toronto early music group the Aradia Ensemble, led by Kevin Mallon. Despite his immersion in the composition of sacred music, Purcell retained a lifelong interest in the theatre, an aspect of his oeuvre that has been neglected. Among the authors of the five works on this recording are two of the most celebrated of the age: John Dryden and William Congreve. For their "semi-operas," Purcell produced incidental music and songs of vitality, wit and imaginative text settings that offer an intriguing look into the world of Restoration drama.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
