Harmonia Podcast #147: Purcell and Renaissance Consort Music



Purcell Odes and Welcome Songs

The King’s Consort newly repacked Hyperion recording of Henry Purcell’s complete odes and welcome songs is a treasure. It allowed me to both enjoy some of my favorite of his works (a re-acquaintance of sorts) and discover pieces that I hadn’t yet heard.

ORLANDOviols debut
