New World Recorders serve up Henry Purcell’s richly varied contributions to the intensely contrapuntal world of the English consort fantasia. The ensemble returns to Capitol Early Music with this unique collection of pieces which can perhaps only be compared to Bach’s Musical Offering and Art of Fugue. Ebullient chaconnesbookend the Fantazias’ complex counterpoint and surprising
harmonies. With Rainer Beckmann, Héloïse Degrugillier, Priscilla Herreid and Gwyn Roberts.
