Based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream,
this work by one of England's greatest composers features all the fine qualities for which Henry Purcell is celebrated — wonderful invention, keen dramatic instinct, and lively characterizations. Highlights include the lovely soprano air, "O let me weep," a series of songs about the seasons, and the magnificent bass solo, "Next winter comes slowly." Reproduced from an early authoritative score, it is certain to be prized by musicians and music lovers alike.
