The Indian Queen, semi-opéra (London 1695)

Deller Consort, Alfred Deller
    • Apple Music

    In quest of the (Baroque) Indies.
    The subject, synonymous with exoticism in Europe of the Golden Age,pits Aztecs against Incas on the stage: Purcell died before finishingthe music, but what he left to accompany this staged entertainment isnonetheless a swan-song of exceptional beauty.

    This title was released for the first time in 1977.
