    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    Outstanding recording of the countertenor art

    James Bowman, Michael Chance and Robert King offer us an outstanding recording of some gems from the Countertenor repertoire, from 'Sound the Trumpet' (Come ye Sons of Art) to an elegy on the death of Henry Purcell by his friend and fellow composer John Blow.

    This is fine, nuanced, singing that pays due attention to the words, and to the peculiarly English rhythms. Both men are on top form - Bowman coppery and rich, Chance bright and agile - and are ably accompanied by Robert King and his Consort. Whilst there are those who object to the countertenor voice in opera and oratorio, here the voice is caught in rep that was specifically written for it. The recording comes highly recommended and is fully documented.
