This is a sumptuous account of the world's first great opera - its innate opulence only redoubled by the lavishly resonant Oxford church in which it is performed. Charles Daniels gives a sensitive and intimate portrayal of the part of Orfeo. Under Parrott's direction, the first-rate team of instrumentalists further enrich our experience in a shapely reading of a still lovely, still fresh masterpiece.
