Henry Purcell: Anthems And Fantazias

Between the dream and the divine

A composition of eight of Purcell’s works, Anthems & Fantasias invites the listener on a divine journey through orchestral pavanes, musical psalms and beatific anthems. Purcell took much inspiration from France and Italy and his adventurous compositions secured his place in the Eternity of classical music. 

In this harmonious work of chorus and verse, Anthems & Fantasias is not only a glorious homage to God, but a holy delight for man.
