As the long title indicates, here are three significant collections presented across two CDs. The first is a compilation of pieces from the posthumous publication of Purcell songs, all beautifully accompanied with viol and archlute. The second disc intersperses songs from the Harmonia Sacra with the complete organ works. Of particular interest here is the Thomas Dallam organ from the late 17th century. Built by the grandson of the famous English builder of the same name, this instrument brings us as close to the sound of 17th-century England as we can hope for. Jill Feldman deftly delivers Purcell’s dramatic and often quirky writing with wonderful expression.
