FAIREST ISLE PURCELL PDF

It is also said to have inspired Charles Wesley to write the hymn Love divine, all loves excelling. Fairest Isle therefore becomes a passionate utterance, and although the specification is for high or medium voice and piano, it seems to work best with a soprano. That means the brightness of the melody comes through fully. Britten dispenses with the relatively lengthy introduction, so that the song begins almost immediately. Two recordings from the same team here — and very little to choose between them, though the Hyperion sound is slightly superior.

That means the brightness of the melody comes through fully. Britten dispenses with the relatively lengthy introduction, so that the song begins almost immediately. Two recordings from the same team here — and very little to choose between them, though the Hyperion sound is slightly superior. Lott sings with great control. The Purcell example is mostly instrumental, so a full version, performed by Les Arts Florissants and William Christie, can be heard by clicking here.

Henry Purcell - Fairest Isle, All Isles Excelling

The "operatic" hit of the last decade of the seventeenth century in London was the work of a composer already being acknowledged England's best ever and the poet John Dryden who then and now is considered the best of his century. Technically, the work is called a "semi-opera," as it was a mixture of spoken passages and musical ones. The English were not ready to embrace full-length grand operas in the French or Italian styles in their own language. Each scene is full of action, be it ritual, pageantry, battle, or scenes of magic, and all the music flows directly from the action in a convincing manner.
