Product details

Featuring the music of Purcell, Blow and Eccles, "Tyrannick Love" is a collection of lyrical, folky, character and dramatic 'mad songs' for soprano, harpsichord, baroque cello (viol and baroque violins on occasion), each written for famous singers and actresses in popular Restoration dramas of late 17th century England. Vivien Hamilton gives the songs the lyricism and dramatic edge that they require, while being sensitively accompanied by Pricilla Taylor and Margaret Waugh.
